    Read to Rover

    It's all about reading aloud to a four-legged friend — a dog! Not just any dog, but a specially-trained therapy dog. The goal is to inspire school-age children to discover the joy of reading while developing literacy skills and confidence in a positive and fun environment.

    Reading sessions are approximately 15 minutes. Children must be in at least Kindergarten to participate. Only readers, dogs, and owners will be allowed in the room. Bring a book or choose one of our library books.

    Space is limited so you must be registered to participate!

    This program occurs December 11 of this month.

    Register at the front desk of the library or call (304) 291-7425.

    Therapy dogs and owners have completed therapy dog training and are members of Therapy Dogs, Inc.

    Green Nights at the Library

    This event started in 2010 when the City of Morgantown emphasized green initiatives declaring 2010 the year of It's Easy Being Green. Since then several Green Nights have been held at the library. Each event focuses on a green topic such as Home Energy Audits, Energy Efficiency Improvements, Organic Gardening, and Green Design & Architecture. Local experts lead the discussion and showcase information materials the library has on the topic.

    Sessions occur one Thursday night per month from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. and are located on the 1st floor of the library when space permits.
