The architects for the new Fairfield Area Library (BCWH) are looking for input from the community. They have scheduled six meetings and ask that interested people attend and let them know what they’d like to see in the new Fairfield Library. The meetings will be held on the following dates and times:

Tuesday, March 28 at the Fairfield Library

2 pm focus on Seniors

We hope you can attend one of these meetings and let the architects know what you’d like to see in the new Fairfield Library.

You can also take a quick survey to provide input.

2016 Henrico Christmas Mother Book Drive

31 Oct

christmasmother1-blog300The Henrico Christmas Mother donation season is coming up, and our Teen Advisory Boards are asking for your help. They want to be able to deliver A LOT of books this year to the Christmas Mother and would appreciate your donations of new books for children and teens.

Who is the Christmas Mother?

Since 1942, Henrico Christmas Mother has provided food, new clothes, toys, books and other gift items to Henrico families with children, seniors age 65+ and disabled adults during the holiday season.

Henrico County Public Library contributes by receiving your book donations during the month of November. When the Christmas Mother starts taking their donations in December, we deliver the books we have collected to the Christmas Mother’s warehouse, where they will be distributed to children in the county.

During the month of November, bring your donations of new children’s and teen books to any library location. We have donation boxes for collection. Thanks for your support in helping make Christmas a little bit brighter for children in need!

Please drop off your donations by Wednesday, November 30th.

For more information about the program, please visit the Henrico Christmas Mother Website.
