The Ohio County Public Library houses a substantial collection of material related to Wheeling's rich history. Local and regional history books and magazines, city directories, cemetery indexes, yearbooks, family histories, and more grace the shelves of the Wheeling Room. Materials in the Wheeling Room are available to be viewed by the general public.
Our genealogist is generally available from 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday.
OCPL appreciates the generosity and thoughtfulness of its many patrons in donating books, historical materials, and other library materials to the Library. Because of the overwhelming number of items donated, the limited amount of staff time to handle these donations, and limited space to house the donated materials, OCPL must restrict the donations accepted. We welcome donations of books, historical materials, and other materials of value. Please read more about our Donation Policies:
