April First Friday @Main

Even though libraries will be closed for Good Friday, the Main Library will open at 7 p.m. for First Friday Art Walk. With the helpful hands of the volunteer organization, HandsOn, the evening will be filled with many activities for people of all ages.  

For First Friday, we will have the Richmond Youth Jazz Guild performing. The Richmond youth jazz guild was created in 2008 as a way to bring jazz and acoustic instrument playing back into the lives of youth in the Richmond metropolitan area.

This month’s art exhibition in the Gellman Room is “Edward Abbey’s Southwest”. Inspired by Edward Abbey’s literary works, Richmond photographers, Al and Linda Warfield present colorful, vivid images of landscapes, flora, and fauna of the southwest.

In the Dooley Foyer, Dooley Hall & 2nd Floor is, “Why Children’s Book: Inspiring Generations”. It is an exhibit featuring over fifty essays from Richmond community leaders.

For the Richmond Writers Series in Special Collections, best-seller author, David L. Robbins, will discuss his creative process and the upcoming premiere of the play Scorched Earth on April 13th at the Barksdale Theater. 

We look forward to seeing you on First Friday.
