Library Journal’s Great Library Road Show is coming to Richmond

Hey, have you heard the really BIG NEWS? Library Journal’s Great Library Road Show is coming to Richmond.

The Library Journal road crew is traveling from Charlotte to Philadelphia and stopping along the way to see what libraries are doing to address the needs of their communities. They will be blogging and tweeting, taking pictures, and chatting with library patrons and staff. They want to know what the staff at Richmond Public Library is doing in response to what our patrons like and want. We know we are spectacular and provide great free programs like computer classes, job seekers’ services, gardening classes, genealogy workshops, Good Health seminars, Money Talks, concerts from local musicians, story times for children and families... not to mention that we keep an unending supply of information flowing through our city via books, DVD's, online databases, and more. But we want you, the members of our community, to come to the Main library and tell the Great Library Road Show crew (and us!) why you love libraries and especially the Richmond Public Library. We'll be recording your stories for our own “Story Corps” archives.

Please join us at the Main Library on Monday, March 12th from 4 to 6 pm to welcome our guests from Library Journal and to share your love for your library.

Some of our young patrons are so excited about the Great Library Road Show visit that they’re already working on messages about why they love Richmond Public Library:
