History: The Belington Public Library began in a small room on the second floor of Belington's City Hall in 1977 under the auspices of the Belington Federated Women’s Club and the Belington Kiwanis. It was open two hours on Friday evenings and staffed by volunteers. The library moved to a one modular room facility at its present location in 1980. After a destructive flood in 1985 which caused extensive damage and destroyed 75% of the books in the collection, the library recovered with help from FEMA and the local community. Soon after, another modular room was added, allowing the introduction of computers into the library. In 1998 a third room was built to accommodate children’s activities and the children’s collection. The Belington Public Library now serves more than 6,600 residents in Upshur County.
