Storytimes with Ripple

Ripple will be making appearances throughout the week for some very special National Library Week storytimes. In addition to his groovy dance moves and fun photo ops, Ripple will also be passing out Ripple plushies with our brand new logo on the shirt!

Richmond Public Library Swag and Activities

Visit any of our locations to pick up some fun activities and swag (while supplies last). We’ll have coloring pages, word searches, a Dewey Decimal quiz, and a cool challenge card to help you get involved throughout the week. We also have a limited number of tote bags we’ll be giving away on a first come, first served basis. Remember, Broad Rock, Ginter Park, Main, and West End are all open on Sundays if you want to snag one early in the week.
