LIBRARY HISTORY

The first library in White Sulphur Springs was established in the summer of 1914 with the help of a gift from Olive P. Stokes. Miss Stokes, a frequent visitor to the Old White Hotel, donated $100 to be used to purchase furniture and pay rent for two upstairs rooms in a building on Main Street. In 1915, the White Sulphur Springs Company donated the present site to be used for a library.

The first library building was erected in 1921.  Seven years later a community house was added to the facility. During World War II, the U.S.O added a back room to the building. In 1976, the local organization became a state-affiliated library under the auspices of the West Virginia Library Commission and adopted its new name -- White Sulphur Springs Public Library.

As the years went by and the library continued to grow, the original building became inadequate. In 1987, a new building was built on the same site.  This 5,000 square foot facility is still in use today.
