Helvetia Public Library

4901 Pickens Road
Helvetia, WV 26224


About Us:

The Helvetia Public Library opened as an "outpost" library in 1984 for the residents of Middle Fork District in Randolph County, West Virginia. Built to blend in with the rustic aesthetics of the little Swiss village, the library is located in the "Historic Square" which also houses the museum, log school and gazebo.

We are a small library, approximately 1,000 sq-ft, however our services are vital in this rural area. We have an amazing community with talented people of Swiss heritage and a huge variety of readers. 

The Library has come a long way with booming usage and limited space. With multiple computer workstations and WiFi access, Pickens School children find it very convenient using the Internet to search for information for homework and the word processor to complete their projects neatly. Everyone has e-mail and communicates with friends and relatives across the country. We are proud of our library and look forward to its continued growth.
