Dedicated April 29, 2000.Most of the Robert F. Kidd Library‘s materials relating to West Virginia, Gilmer County, and Glenville are found on second floor in the Berlin B. Chapman Room.
|These materials include West Virginia reference books, circulating materials, non-circulating rare items, as well as bound and microfilmed copies of the local Glenville Democrat newspaper with library created indexes and obituary indexes (1905- ), Glenville State College (GSC) historical information including its Mercury newspaper, the Charleston Gazette on microfilm (1963- ), and various journals associated with West Virginia and the West Virginia State Code. Beyond its main emphasis, this room also houses several special collections including:
A small round table made for GSC’s first president, T.M. Marshall by William Harrison Snyder, provides a cozy reading corner (if one wants to cool off in the climate controlled room). Also for viewing is a framed 1966 survey map of the Glenville Cemetery which is partially located on campus.
