Embrace leadership at your library: celebrate National Library Week April 8-14

GREENSVILLE/EMPORIA DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SERVICES

LOCAL BOARD MEETING

The Greensville/Emporia Department of Social Services Administrative Board will meet on Thursday, October 18, 2017, at 3:30 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Greensville/Emporia Department of Social Services located at 1748 East Atlantic Street.  The public is welcome to attend.

(LAWRENCEVILLE, VA) – The week of April 8-14, the Meherrin Regional Library System will join libraries nationwide in celebrating National Library Week and the many ways libraries lead their communities through the transformative services, programs and expertise they offer.

National Library Week, sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA), is an annual celebration of the life-changing work of libraries, librarians and library workers. Libraries aren’t just places to borrow books or study—they’re also creative and engaging community centers where people can collaborate using new technologies and develop their skills and passions.

Libraries of all types have long been evolving to meet the needs of the communities they serve. Diverse groups including elected officials, small business owners, and students depend upon libraries and the resources they offer. Resources like e-books and technology classes, materials for English-language learners, and programs for job seekers are just a few ways libraries and librarians are transforming to lead their communities. Community members can also develop their own leadership skills at the library, with endless opportunities to build skills and confidence through resources and programming.

The Meherrin Regional Library System serves Brunswick County, Greensville County, and the City of Emporia with branches in Lawrenceville and Emporia, Virginia. The Library helps lead the community by providing access to print and e-resources, reference services, assisting with genealogical research, and encouraging early and lifelong learning through a variety of programming.

Visit the Library during National Library Week to learn more about how your Library can serve you, and participate in our community art project, “Stick Together: Let’s Read!”

For more information, visit the Brunswick County Library at 133 West Hicks Street, Lawrenceville, or the Richardson Memorial Library at 100 Spring Street, Emporia, or visit the Library’s website at www.meherrinlib.org.
