what we do

Welcome to the Dora B. Woodyard Memorial Library! The library is located in Elizabeth, West Virginia, only twenty minutes from I-77 and the greater Parkersburg area.

Established in 1962 and expanded in 1980, this library was built as a memorial to the mother of Elizabeth native, Ronald B. Woodyard. During his lifetime Mr. Woodyard contributed substantial sums of money toward the library as well as to other community projects.

The Library has the distinction of being one of the first cooperative school/public libraries in the state of West Virginia. The Wirt County Board of Trustees and the Wirt County Board of Education    have established a unique bond over the years which has allowed the library to fully serve the students and the public of Wirt County.
