Free book exchange library at the park | News, Sports, Jobs


Tomlinson Run State Park Campground now has a free book exchange library thanks to the efforts of a teenager who is not from the area but has camped there and enjoys reading. Lillian Floyd, a junior at Parkersburg High School and a member of the Girl Scout Troop 34016, started this Girl Scout Gold Award – the highest award in Girl Scouting. “I built the free book lending libraries and put them in three state parks in West Virginia: Audra State Park, Tomlinson Run State Park, and Cedar Creek State Park. Floyd explained. “I had this idea when I was camping, and I didn’t have anything to read that I had brought with me. I started the project in the spring, collecting donations of books from the community and building the boxes with my father for a few months, then I installed the boxes at the end of July and August ”, she added. “Campers or community members can bring any type of book to the library, as long as it is not in poor condition. After all, this library is for people of all ages and interests ”, she continued. “Campers or community members can bring as many books as they want, or they can take a book to enjoy even if they have nothing to give back. The aim of the library is to make reading practical and accessible. Samuel Morris, Superintendent of Tomlinson Run State Park, joins Floyd at the Book Exchange Library set up at Tomlinson Run State Park.
