Circulation --
We offer a maximum of 10 items at a time to be checked out by each patron.  Only 1 DVD can be checked out.  Patrons may renew materials up to three times.

Reference Materials --

Tax Forms --
We offer State & Federal tax forms on-site during tax season.  If there you need forms that we do not have on hand, we are able to print them from the IRS website in most cases.

FAX Service--
For sending FAXes we do charge $3 for the first page and $1 for each additional page.  For receiving FAXes, we charge $1 per page.

Photo Copier -- 
We charge $.15 per photocopied page.

Laser printing --
We charge $.15 fee per page and can print in black & white only.

Inter Library Loans --
We participate in an Interlibrary Loan service in order to obtain materials not available in our collection.  This service depends on the generosity of public and academic libraries across the state.  For security reasons interlibrary loan materials must be signed out from the front desk. In order to receive this privilege the borrower agrees to:  1.  Accept responsibility for materials between signing out and signing in. This includes cost of damage to or loss of borrowed item. 2. Return the materials by the date due marked on the interlibrary loan slip. Not returning materials to the lending library on time may jeopardize our ability to continue receiving interlibrary loan services from that library. Please make every effort to return this material by the due date.  Please note: Borrowers are required to have a valid library card with the MLN system in order to check out Interlibrary Loan materials.

Computer/Internet Access -- 
We offer public access computers free of charge.  We currently have a time limit of 1 hour per patron, however we do not ask patrons to relinquish their computers unless we have other patrons waiting to use them.  Patrons must have a good library record in order to use the computers (no fines above $5 and no long time overdues).  We also offer wireless internet access.  To use this free service, patrons must provide their own wireless capable laptop computer and ask to use the service at our circulation desk.  Staff will then provide a wireless access login and password for the requested amount of time.  Patrons will then have 24 hours in which to use that allotted amount of time.  If more time is needed, another session can be requested, free of charge. Children under 17 must have a  parent or guardian sign a permission slip to use the computers.

Videos /DVDs --
We offer both popular release movies as well as children's movies. Primarily our collection is available on VHS tape, though our DVD collection is growing.

Paperback Book Exchange --
You can bring in a paperback book and take one from our exchange section.  Please note: If there is a colored dot and a library spine label on the spine of the book you are taking, that is not an exchange book, but is part of our collection and must be checked out.

Book Sale --
We offer a continuing book sale table at the library.

Books on-Tape & CD --
We offer a wide selection of books on tape, with an ever-growing collection of books on CD and audio books for download to your personal player through the WV Reads program. 

Meeting Room --
The library provides a meeting room for groups and individuals who have no place else to meet.  Donations will be appreciated for use of the meeting room. 

The library  does not have the economic resources to provide space free of charge for businesses and organizations who want to use the room as a substitute office.
