West Virginia became the 35th state on June 20, 1863, and for the last 100 of those years KCPL has been collecting resources related to the mountain state.
You can learn more about these collections with our West Virginia Resource Guide. When we build the new Main Library there will be a special West Virginia Room to house the books, maps, photos, and audio visual materials that make up this collection.
MountainLit is sponsored by the Bridgeport Public Library. The site showcases West Virginia authors. It has sections on adult, children's and African American authors from WV. There is also a list of awards won by WV authors and links to information on authors.
