Library Benefits And Remote Working Opportunities To Offset Population Decline, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, summer is the perfect time for students of all ages to relax, but it’s also a time when learning loss can occur. One of the best resources to avoid the so-called “summer slide” is the library. Chris Schulz has the story.

Also, in this show, with the addition of the New River Gorge region, the Ascend West Virginia program now has five destinations that are welcoming new remote working residents to the Mountain State. With the incentives of cash and free outdoor adventures, the program hopes to help offset the state’s population decline. Randy Yohe reports.
