Parking at library to be temporarily limited

WHEELING – Beginning August 11, the Ohio County Public Library, located at 52 16th Street, Wheeling, will undergo a resealing and water protection for the foundation on the 17th Street side of the building, as well as a repaving of the entire driveway.

As a result, parking will be impacted and the book drop unavailable for a period of one to two months.

For the first half of the project, the parking lot behind the building will remain open with one-lane access to the lot.

Parking along the driveway and along the 17th Street side of the building will be lost for the entire project along with access to the book drop.

The Library is arranging for temporary book drops to be located in the Eoff Street/16th Street parking lot which will remain open to patrons throughout the project.

These book drops may not be available during the first week of the project.

Library programs will also be impacted by the project. Programs scheduled for August 19 through the end of September may be postponed or held at another location.

Please check the Library’s website at or call 304-232-0244 for updates and more information. Updates will be posted as they become available.
