History

The Bluefield Branch had its beginnings in a program of the Bluefield Virginia Women’s Club.  In 1941, the Club created a library operated by volunteers from the Club, including Cora Lee Philpott, an elementary school teacher.  The library began in a building on Virginia Avenue across from the town hall.  In 1950, the Town of Bluefield provided space for the library in the town hall and, for some time thereafter, operated the library.  This library became associated with Tazewell County Public Library by 1967 and by 1980 was a branch operated by the public library.  Outgrowing the second story room in the town hall, the Bluefield Branch moved to a new building near Graham Middle School in February 1987 through the particular support of Hudson Huffard, Jr., Eastern District Supervisor.  Architect for the new facility was William J. Huber, Echols-Sparger and Associates and contractor was Swope Construction.  Funding came primarily through federal revenue sharing funds, in the last year they were distributed.  Originally known as the Bluefield Virginia Library, this service became the Eastern District Branch, then the Clear Fork Branch, and now is the Bluefield Branch of Tazewell County Public Library.
