History: The Northern Hancock County Community Library began in a storefront on Main Street in Chester in 1970. Four years later, a West Virginia instant library was erected and an addition was added in 1978. The library was renamed the Lynn Murray Memorial Library in 1982, and now serves 7,400 residents in Hancock County.
