Richardson Memorial Library 40th Anniversary Celebrations

Richardson Memorial Library celebrated its 40th Anniversary the week of September 11-16 with a proclamation from the City of Emporia and Greensville County naming September 11th as W. E. Richardson, Jr. Memorial Library Day, and a giveaway each day to the patron who checked out the 40th book of the day. Pictured are Library Board Members with the two proclamations, and giveaway winners Ella McBride with Director Becky Walker; John Newsome; Caron Willis-Johnson with Hannah Geist; Melissa Jones and Nicholas Wozniak; and Destiny, Zamon, and Malaysia Woodley.

Richardson Memorial Library Turns 40

The William E. Richardson, Jr. Memorial Library is celebrating 40 years of service. The library will have light refreshments available on Monday, September 11th in appreciation of the library’s patrons. The week of September 11th- 18th there will be a giveaway a day to the patron checking out the 40th item. The community is encouraged to visit the library and take advantage of the information, services, and resources available to all.   

The development and implementation of the first public library in Greensville County was initiated by the Woman’s Club of Emporia. Through their efforts the first public library space was opened on June 12, 1931. Known as the Greensville County Public Library, it was located in a small room of the county courthouse and was open for two hours every Friday afternoon.

As demand grew, the need for a larger space became apparent. The Greensville County Board of Supervisors purchased the former Merchants and Farmers Bank on South Main Street in 1948 for the purpose of a new home for the library. The new library opened in 1949 with its first paid librarian. Through the years and with an ever increasing need to supply the community with rich resources, it was again recognized that the library needed more space to expand its services.

A “Friends of the Library” was formed in 1964 with support from the Woman’s Club of Emporia for the purpose of increasing public interest and raising funds for a new library building. With the efforts of the Friends, a generous donation from the William E. Richardson family in memory of their only son William E. Richardson, Jr., and the assistance of the City of Emporia as part of the municipal complex, a new library was built at its current location on Spring Street. The William E. Richardson, Jr. Memorial Library was dedicated and opened to the public in September 1977. It is through the work and determination of local citizens from the past to the present that the Richardson Memorial Library continues to serve the entire community with an abundance of books, resources, and services.

Meherrin Regional Library offers free eclipse viewing glasses to patrons

The Meherrin Regional Library System has joined more than 1,000 libraries across the country to participate in the celestial event of the century, the August 21, 2017 Solar Eclipse. During this nationwide event, the moon will pass between the earth and the sun, causing total or partial darkness throughout the U.S.

In Brunswick and Greensville counties, the eclipse will begin around 1:15 PM, reach maximum obscurity around 2:45 PM, and end around 4:00 PM.

Because Virginia will only experience a partial eclipse, those wishing to view it must wear protective eyewear that can filter out light and prevent damage to their eyes. There is no point where the eclipse will be safe to view directly without a solar filter.

Beginning August 14, 2017, Brunswick County Library in Lawrenceville and Richardson Memorial Library in Emporia will offer a free pair of eclipse viewing glasses and safe viewing info to patrons when they use their library card. Supply is limited, however, and will be on a first come, first served basis.

Transform your ideas about the library: celebrate National Library Week April 9-15

The Meherrin Regional Library System joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating the many ways libraries are transforming their communities every day through the services and invaluable expertise they offer.

April 9-15 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the changing role of libraries, librarians, and library workers.  Libraries aren’t only a place of quiet study, but also creative and engaging community centers where people can collaborate using new technologies.

Libraries of all types are evolving to meet the needs of the communities they serve. Elected officials, small business owners, students, and the public at large depend upon libraries and the resources they offer to address the needs of their communities. By providing such resources as e-books and computer assistance, materials for English-language learners, programs for job seekers, or a safe haven in times of crisis, libraries and librarians transform their communities.

The Meherrin Regional Library System is transforming by providing computers, printers, WIFI, and copy services in addition to the books, movies, and magazines available to check out. The library offers weekly storytimes and Summer Reading Programs, as well as meeting room spaces. The Meherrin Regional Library’s friendly staff is there to guide and assist the library patrons who visit each day.

Libraries also offer something unique to their communities - the expertise of individual librarians. Librarians assist patrons in using increasingly complex technology and sorting through the potentially overwhelming mass of information bombarding today’s digital society. This is especially crucial when access to reliable and trustworthy data is more important than ever.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. 

 

To learn more about your local library, visit the Brunswick County Library, Lawrenceville or the Richardson Memorial Library, Emporia or the library’s Web site at www.meherrinlib.org.

A library card is the coolest card – September is Library Card Sign-up Month

Today’s libraries are about more than books. They are creative educational spaces for learners from birth to high school and beyond. September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Meherrin Regional Library System joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that every student has the most import school supply of all – a free library card.

Librarians provide important resources to families whose children are at the earliest stages of development, by teaching parents and caregivers the components of early literacy which help children develop the basic tools for school readiness. As of 2010, libraries in the United States offered more than 2.3 million children’s programs, which account for nearly two thirds of all library programming.

Older students can access high-speed Internet, digital tools and the opportunity to work with trained professionals on how to use them. Librarians provide guided training in digital media and grow digital literacy skills. Libraries also provide equity of access to digital tools and media, which has become increasingly important in high-poverty areas where students are less likely to have a computer or internet access in the home. 

Libraries are also a training ground for students of all ages to expand their knowledge and explore creative pursuits. The development of makerspaces is just one way libraries are seeking to meet this demand, ranging from low-tech, hands-on engineering opportunities for children and teens using toys and kits to the incorporation of high-tech tools like laser cutters and 3D printers.

Resources at the Brunswick County Library and Richardson Memorial Library are available to anyone who has a library card. Students can turn to the library for materials, programs and knowledgeable library staff that support academic achievement.

For more information on how to sign up for a library card, visit the Brunswick County Library in Lawrenceville, or the Richardson Memorial Library in Emporia, or visit the library online at www.meherrinlib.org.

Participants can win prizes for reaching their reading goals.

“We’ve planned a wonderful program for kids to make the library a great place to read, learn, and discover what’s available for their enjoyment,” said Krystal Cook-Elliott, Youth Services Librarian.

Themed events include a kickoff carnival on Thursday, June 30th.  Some other programs include a demonstration from Virginia State Police K-9 Dog, Zumba with an instructor from the Emporia-Greensville YMCA, Uncle Henry's fun animal facts and nature show, a meet and greet with Nutsy, the Richmond Flying Squirrels mascot, and much more! 

There’s also a serious side to summer reading. Research has shown that reading over the summer prevents summer reading loss.

“Studies also indicate students who read recreationally outperformed those who don’t. Students read more when they can choose materials based on their own interests,” Polly Duffey, Director. “Our libraries are committed to supporting lifelong learning and educational enrichment for all families.”

New Circulation Desk at Library

The Richardson Memorial Library located in Emporia, Virginia recently completed the purchase and installation of a new service desk.  This new public service desk is constructed at varied height which now offers library users of all heights and needs easy access to the librarians.  Instead of the older desk which was at a standing height only, the new desk is lower and allows for approachability for comfortable patron-staff interactions.  The new desk also provides a better staff workflow and this means a more effective and efficient public assistance to library patrons.  The old stair steps children had to use to get their books to the top of the desk for check-out are gone, no longer necessary.  The funds for this new public service desk were provided to the Richardson Memorial Library by an anonymous donor expressly for the purpose of improving public service through better design and materials.  The Meherrin Regional Library thanks that donor for thinking of the Richardson Memorial Library and its contribution to the community.  Everyone please come into the library and check out the new desk.
