Kanawha County Public Libraries


The Kanawha County Public Library is the largest public library system in West Virginia. They have nearly 100,000 card holders, and while the vast majority of their library system patrons are from Kanawha and Putnam Counties, residents from all 55 West Virginia counties are represented in the cardholder database. The various branches of the public library system were established over the years to better serve specific areas of the county and provide a local presence for the Main Library system. All the libraries can be reached through their main website at kanawhalibrary.org. Although not a direct part of the Kanawha County Library System, the South Charleston Public Library also offers the same services to the citizens of South Charleston and can provide reciprocal membership in partner with the KCPL.
