Help Us Design Our New Library!
We are currently in the preliminary planning stages of the master plan for our new Main Library. We want this to be a library designed for you - our community. Please watch this recording of the community workshop we hosted with architectural firms Steinberg Hart and KEi. The workshop took place on 7/15/2021 but we are still seeking community input! Feel free to share your thoughts and suggestions either by emailing us at email@example.com or calling our Foundation Office at (804) 646-5511.
July 21 & August 11 - 14
StoryCorps created One Small Step to bring together two strangers who may believe they have nothing in common to get to know one another as people and create meaningful connections. Learn more about how to conduct your own guided conversations with the StoryCorps webinar on July 21 or register for one of our recording days here at RPL during August 11 - 14.
