A variety of programs are offered at the Ohio County Public Library throughout the year for patrons of all ages. Whether it's a movie screening, a storytime, or a university-level lecture, there's always something going on at the Library. All of our Library-sponsored programs are free to the public.

Andrew Carnegie called the public library “The People’s University," believing it to be an essential institution of learning for people of all ages. Today, the Ohio County Public Library seeks to continue to assist local residents in the pursuit of knowledge and education. Upper Ohio Valley Festival of Books, People's University classes, and the popular weekly Lunch With Books are just a sampling of the programs that offer life long learning opportunities to the public.
Early childhood literacy is important. Children who are read to regularly exhibit higher activation in areas of the brain that support mental imagery and comprehension of narratives — key skills needed for independent reading comprehension. Library programs have significant positive impacts on early development and help equip children with lifelong learning and literacy skills that help prepare them for school and beyond. Drop in for one of our storytimes, browse for a bedtime story, or spend a quiet hour reading to your child in our children's department.
