Ruby Read Mobile Library

Our Ruby Read Mobile Library provides books and library services for residents in rural communities within Monongalia and Preston Counties. Many of these towns are too small to have a public library, and in the schools, the library may only be a few shelves of books for the entire student body. The closest book store or library may be over an hour away. Families may not have the resources to travel all the way to Morgantown or to purchase books for their household. The Ruby Read Mobile Library allows these families to enjoy new reading material that they might not otherwise have access to.

The Ruby Read Mobile Library visits these communities regularly throughout the school year to provide books to both children and adults. Patrons sign up for a library card and have access to hundreds of books which we rotate to provide fresh reading material. They can also request specific titles or subject matter. Our mobile library currently serves over four hundred patrons in fifteen different communities throughout the two counties, including Bruceton Mills, Hazelton, Fellowsville, Tunnelton, and Kingwood.
