Much has changed in the Wayne
County Libraries over the past decade.
The addition of on-line databases and downloadable
books has changed the way your local library operates in the
community. Now by going to our website, students can find
answers through the resources offered on the Library Databases
link. On our front page we have a link to OverDrive, a resource
that has downloadable books. As the popular phrase says, "we are
now available to the public 24/7."
We are happy to announce that now the C-K and Wayne
branch libraries have photocopiers that can make color copies.
That is something that has been requested by patrons in both
communities for some time. Cost of color copies is 25 cents per
All three libraries can scan items for customers. At
C-K and Wayne, the photocopier also acts as a scanner. Items can
be scanned and saved to a flash drive.
One thing that has remained constant is how Wayne
County Libraries are funded. The library system receives local
funding from the County Commission (via levy), Board of
Education, Kenova (levy) and Ceredo. Fort Gay and Wayne provide
services. The libraries appreciate all the support these local
entities have given since the 1980s.
The libraries will continue to offer books and other
materials to check out along with public Internet and
traditional programs such as story hour and the Summer Reading
The next few years for the Wayne County Libraries
will continue to see changes through new technologies or the way
customers use the libraries. Funding will always be of
importance to libraries as state and local budgets become
tighter. Levy elections will be coming up in future years and we
are proud that Wayne County voters have shown their support at
the ballot box time after time.
Thank you for your continued support of Wayne County
