5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Beautiful building, and people who work there have always been very helpful to me. My kids and wife are members and get their books here.

When I lived in WV this was my place to visit for books. I am glad to see that it is still going strong.

“genealogy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

The library has a individual room dedicated to genealogy research. Quiet and staff more than willing to assist in your search. Did I mention no admission charge and low cost for reproductions. Great place to search local and state genealogy.

“Beautiful architecture!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

If you've never been to Handley Library, you need to go at least one time. It's awe-inspiring and an example of architecture that has long passed. It was renovated awhile ago and is in beautiful shape.

“Iconic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

This beaux arts building clearly defines the skyline of Winchester and rightly so. It stands out among blocks of colonial architecture downtown. It is just as remarkable and well maintained inside as it is outside.
