Dedicated on April 25, 1954, the Swaney Memorial Library is the oldest library in Hancock County, West Virginia. The colonial-styled brick building sits on top of a ridge that overlooks the Ohio River and the town of New Cumberland, West Virginia. It is the legacy of a local doctor who later became a very successful steel manufacturer.

    We love it here, the girls who work there are super sweet, and the week long summer reading program was absolutely fantastic. They have a great kids room and selection of kids books as well.
