The Doddridge County Public Library closed Friday, March 20, 2020 and will remain closed until further notice.  This difficult decision was made by our library board and staff in part because of local and state advisement regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, but especially because of a strong recommendation from the The Association for Rural & Small Libraries. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause and we deeply regret closing our doors but we want to do our part to protect the public and our staff. During this time, you can still return materials through our night drop, though overdue items and/or fines will not be assessed.
