BUCKHANNON - West Virginia Wesleyan College recently appointed Beth Rogers ’97 as Director of Library Services.


Rogers was a double major in English Literature and Secondary Education during her time at West Virginia Wesleyan College as a student and later earned a Masters in Library Science from Drexel University.


Rogers returns to the Annie Merner Pfeiffer Library after serving as assistant director at the Upshur County Public Library and says she is most excited to be working with students again.

“The library serves a key role on campus in supporting the work of teaching and learning for all members of the campus community,” Rogers said. “We provide access to resources, collections and services to support the work of our curriculum, and our staff is available to help our users effectively use the resources available to them.”


“Additionally, we provide a key campus gathering space to allow for both personal research and study and collaborative work among students, faculty and staff.”


The Annie Merner Pfeiffer Library underwent a $2 million renovation with input from students, reopening in fall 2019. The renovation included creating 24-hour access to the library for students, faculty and staff.
