About Us:
The Summersville Public Library was originally founded as the Elizabeth Stephenson Memorial Library in 1962. The library was initially house in a space donated by the Farmers and Merchants Bank and run by volunteers. In 1964 the library moved into Summersville?s newly constructed municipal building.

When the library outgrew its space in the municipal building it entered into a partnership with Glenville State College to open a new public library that could support the curriculum of their Nicholas County branch campus.

Through a number of changes the Glenville campus is now the independently accredited New River Community and Technical College, Nicholas County Campus. Through our partnership with NRCTC we are able to stay open more hours, offer all of our patrons more magazine and journals to browse through, a larger Reference Collection and a more in-depth non-fiction circulating collection.

The Summersville Public Library is also a member of the Mountain Library Network, a consortium of neighboring libraries working together to bring you more choices for your information needs.

What a great lil’ library! Friendly lady at the counter issued a card for us temporary folks and the kids went off in search of new reading material. They each found the EXACT book they were wanting. The oldest has been waiting over a month for the same book through a different online library. Happy kids = happy mom! I foresee a lot of time spent here this summer.
