A Makeshift Durbin Library

Durbin, WV – Next week, library staff, board members, and volunteers will start carrying books across the street from the Durbin Library to a Main Street storefront rented and occupied by the Upper Pocahontas Community Club.

It’s a temporary solution, meant to keep some library services available in Durbin, and to keep community support mobilized around building a new library.

Community members and library staff protested the library board’s decision to close the Durbin Library. Reaction to this stepping-stone solution is mixed.
