What is Library Pathfinders?


Library Pathfinders is a new 2021 initiative for grades PreK-5th acting as an extension of the Inquire Within program. To begin participating, download the Pathfinder Journal.  Created during the COVID-19 pandemic, this initiative serves to engage students, parents, libraries and teachers in a familiar learning space: virtual. A "Pathfinder" is someone who goes ahead of others to create a path for them to follow. This program is a partnership among West Virginia Public Broadcasting and five libraries. The program is named in honor of the five libraries that created the path for other libraries and organizations to follow. Those five libraries are:

  • Burnsville Public Library
  • Mason County Library
  • Webster-Addison Public Library
  • Clay County Public Library
  • Boone-Madison Public Library
