Julian noted, “The Library has been asked to provide special Saturday hours as a “trial balloon” to determine whether or not these hours should become a regular component of our schedule.  We welcome not only those affiliated with Potomac State, but also members of the Keyser community, to visit our facility and take advantage of our resources and services.”
