Lunch With Books

Representatives of Wheeling Heritage and the library’s archives staff will remember LaBelle, share items from the collection and unveil a new display of LaBelle artifacts.

At the time of its closing in 2010, the LaBelle plant had been producing its signature cut nails for nearly 160 years. In 2015, when much of the interior equipment was up for auction, Wheeling Heritage rescued an essential part of Wheeling’s industrial history when it bought the paper records in the building for $5.

Although the LaBelle factory was demolished in 2017, the legacy of this iconic plant is being preserved. Thanks to the donation from Wheeling Heritage, the factory’s records have found a permanent home in the archives and special collections department at the library.

Lunch With Books programs are free and open to the public. Attendees may bring a bag lunch; complimentary beverages are provided.
