    The Kanawha County Public Library is more than a building. It is a topnotch library system with an exceptional reputation of vibrancy and trust among the public, local and state government, schools and hospitals, and businesses and community organizations.  

    Headquartered in Charleston, West Virginia’s state capital, Kanawha County Public Library is West Virginia’s largest public library system with its downtown Main Library, nine branches and mobile library. The library boasts a robust $8 million-plus annual budget. The well-educated, experienced, forward-thinking 143-member staff offers extensive educational, recreational, and cultural materials, programs, and services to nearly 100,000 registered patrons residing locally and throughout the state. 

    With its rich collection of print and electronic resources, Kanawha County Public Library circulated over 900,000 items and registered more than 300,000 website visits during 2018-19. Patrons can access print materials, enjoy Wi-Fi hotspots, and connect to Hoopla, Kanopy, and similar sites supported by the library’s own fiber-based data communications system and cloud-based ILS.

    Kanawha County Public Library is in the midst of a major renovation project, one of the largest privately-funded public library building projects in the nation. Thanks to the generosity of numerous private donors and organizations, construction bids will be released in late 2019. With architectural leadership from HBM Architects, well known for its work in the library community, and Silling Architects, the massive redesign and expansion will “reimagine” Main, an iconic historic building situated on Charleston’s principal downtown avenue and will position the Library to inspire the community for the long-term.
