Through its Lunch With Books program, the library invites patrons to bring their own lunch and listen to authors talk about new books, watch living historians portray significant characters in West Virginia or U.S. history, or enjoy the work of musicians, storytellers, and a variety of other performers and speakers. The program reflects the OCPL’s serious dedication to and active pursuit of its role as a community center and cultural resource in the Ohio Valley’s northern panhandle.

Lunch With Books programs are held on Tuesdays at noon in the Ohio County Public Library’s auditorium. The programs are free and open to the public and the library provides free beverages.

“Lunch With Books is an outstanding program — one of the best in the country. Hopefully, I will get another chance to get back to Wheeling.” -Author Matthew Algeo
