Welcome to the Valley Head Public Library website!

The Valley Head Public Library is the learning center of our community and the place people turn to for the discovery of ideas, the joy of reading and the power of information.  Community needs drive our services and special emphasis is placed upon supporting students of all ages and upon stimulating young children’s interest and appreciation for reading and learning.

The Valley Head Public Library is participating in a statewide reading challenge in honor of West Virginia's 150th birthday. Patrons are encouraged to read 150 books between January 1st and December 31st, 2013.

West Virginia Reads 150


Join the West Virginia Library Commission (WVLC), the West Virginia Center for the Book and libraries across the state in West Virginia Reads 150, a fun reading challenge that celebrates West Virginia’s 150th birthday in 2013.

The year-long reading initiative encourages West Virginians to read 150 books in any format (printed book, e-book, downloadable text, etc.) from any source, during the course of 2013, West Virginia’s sesquicentennial year. Books can be on any topic, fiction or non-fiction; they must be read between January 1 and December 31, 2013.

People can read 150 books individually, or create teams to read 150 books collectively. Libraries across West Virginia are encouraged to form teams to compete. Teams, which can have up to 15 members, must choose a name and select a leader to keep track of the books read by team members.

All ages and groups can participate – friends, coworkers, book clubs, classmates, seniors, etc. If children are too young to read on their own, kids can have their parents read to them. Families can use their Summer Reading Program reading toward their West Virginia Reads 150 tally.

The program is not limited to public libraries – bookstores, school and academic libraries, literacy organizations, youth services providers and more are encouraged to participate in West Virginia Reads 150.
