Wheeling, WV- The Ohio County Public Library was proud to celebrate Earth Day on Friday, April 22, 2022 at the Ohio County Solid Waste Authority Block Party & Spring Plant Swap. The event was held on the beautiful campus of West Virginia Northern Community College. In addition to a downtown cleanup that was held earlier in the day, the Block Party was an opportunity for residents to connect and learn more about assets available from community partners, play games, listen to great music, eat good food and take home some valuable resources.
Several community members signed up for new OCPL cards and updated their existing library cards. Free books, including some author signed books, were also given away to people of all ages. Literature crafts were also made and a few lucky children walked away with these crafts. Additionally, existing library users were able to learn more about online library resources that they may not be currently utilizing.
The event was an excellent opportunity on a beautiful spring day to connect with valuable community partners. The Ohio County Public Library thanks the Ohio County Solid Waste Authority for their hard work and inviting the OCPL to take part in the event!
