Service League of Morgantown owns and operates the Old Stone House Gift Shop. Profits from the sale of used books are used for the league to provide ongoing funding for books and media supplies to all Elementary and Middle School and

The recipients of the Book Committee’s profits this year are Clay Battelle Senior High, University High School and Mylan Park Elementary. Each received $300 towards library acquisitions.

From the proceeds from their 2012 Kids’ Day Scholastic Book Sale, books valued at $281 were gifted to South Middle School. From monies earned from the sale of used books within their gift shop throughout 2011-2012, an additional $882 was earned and split between Trinity Christian and Morgantown High. In the previous year, funding in the amount of $315 was also given to libraries at Suncrest Primary and Westover Middle School.

In January of 2013, Service League partnered with Mon County Early Head Start’s Reading Incentive Program to provide books valued at $417.81.

Service League also provided $600 towards funding for books to be given to Energy Express campers in 2013 and 2015. In 2014 a donation of $400 dollars towards books for Energy Express campers was given in addition to a donation of $200 to be used towards food at Energy Express.

In its 80 years of existence, the League has contributed more than $347,000 back to the Morgantown community. This includes over $26,000 to the Morgantown Public Library, approximately $78,000 toward books for Mon County School libraries, and over $243,000 to other charitable donations throughout the county to improve the lives of local citizens through charitable, educational and cultural activities.
