Chamber Music Society of Central Virginia presents “Just Kidding”
Saturday September 24th
Gellman Room at Main Library
The Chamber Music Society of Central Virginia presents “Just Kidding” with Jordan Bak, viola, Fitz Gary, viola, Grant Houston, violin, Mari Lee, violin, and James Wilson, cello. Comedy has been an essential part of dealing with the human condition for thousands of years, and for centuries, composers have given us musical humor to tickle our funny bones whether we're alone at home or at a concert. CMSCVA celebrates the lighter side of life in this concert of chamber music by Haydn, Heinrich von Biber, and the fictitious P. D. Q. Bach. Livestreaming will be available through the Richmond Public Library YouTube channel.

National Library Card Sign-Up Month
All RPL Locations
Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. During the month, the American Library Association and libraries unite in a national effort to ensure every child signs-up for their own library card. Throughout the school year, public librarians and library staff will assist parents and caregivers with saving hundreds of dollars on educational resources and services for students. From free access to STEAM programs/activities, educational apps, in-person and virtual homework help, technology workshops to the expertise of librarians, a library card is one of the most cost-effective back-to-school supplies available.
September Art Galleries
September 2nd - October 4th
Throughout the month of September Main Library will be hosting exhibits from Robert Papas, Lindsay Nolting, Art on Wheels, and Lew Lott.
