October is National Archives Month!

In celebration of the Wheeling 250 and in conjunction with Archives Month, the OCPL’s Local History and Archives Team will explore how commercial photography, as well as floods, fires, and disasters, have helped preserve Wheeling’s story in images. The program will also mark the opening of a special exhibit in the Library Auditorium featuring photographs of Wheeling between the 1930s and the 1960s taken by two generations photographers, Dick Cress and his father, Robert Cress.

"Lunch With Books” is the library’s flagship program for adult patrons. These lunchtime programs feature authors, poets, musicians, historians, and more every Tuesday at noon. Complimentary beverages are provided. Bring your lunch, feed your brain!
