History: Pocahontas County’s first library in Marlinton opened in 1953 in the Mayor’s office. Over the next two decades, the library was housed in several locations until moving to a home donated by the McClintic family in 1974. After that building was declared unsafe 20 years later, the McClintic family bequeathed a large amount of money for a new building. Although a devastating flood in 1996 caused major damage to the library in its temporary home, the new McClintic Public Library opened in 2000. The Pocahontas Library system now includes 4 branches - Durbin, Green Bank, Hillsboro and Linwood, and serves over 9,000 area residents.
