A little history about the Library:

The Piedmont Woman's Club established the Piedmont Library. It became incorporated on August 23, 1960. At that time, the women went to the County United Way to secure funds to help operate the library. They were then eligible for funding from West Virginia Library Commission (WVLC). We continue to be a CUW agency of both Mineral County WV and Alleghany County MD to this day. The library was operated out of one room on Library Street. It outgrew the one room and was relocated to 1 Childs Avenue. The Mt. Carbon Lodge owned this building at the time. In March of 1996, the Mt. Carbon Lodge merged with the Davis Lodge in Keyser. They no longer needed the building, so they agreed to let us purchase it. The building consists of three floors. The library is housed on the first floor, measuring 1350 square feet. The second floor is used for storage. The third floor contains the trophies and pictures from our former high schools.

We are part of an area referred to as, the tri-towns area, which includes Piedmont WV, Luke MD, and Westernport MD. We may be a small community but we are full of spirit and rich in history. The main purpose of the library is to provide excellent, up to date and free services to the many patrons of Allegany and Mineral Counties. Our main objective is to keep education and learning as a top priority in our communities.

Piedmont Public Library has been on the prestigious Star Library list every year since the inception in 2009. We have received 5 stars numerous times and average over 4 stars over the 11 years. We are proud of this achievement. There was an article in the West Virginia Library Commissions Library Lookout that was published in the January 2013 issue. The 2018 full article in the Library Journal may also be read HERE.

Stop by the library today to learn more about all we have to offer or to see how you can help keep the role of the library active and going strong in our community. Your support as either a patron, volunteer or contributor is greatly appreciated. We look forward to seeing you.
