The Russell County Public Library competed successfully for a grant titled Let's Talk About It: Making Sense of the American Civil War. Only 65 libraries across the United States were awarded this grant, from the American Library Association and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Russell County Public Library is honored to have been one of four libraries in Virginia chosen. The library will have several programs beginning in the Fall as well as several new books relating to the Civil War. Watch for more information to be announced.
The library in Lebanon has installed a new security system which will be activated this summer, and will alarm if books are taken through the doors without being checked out. The library hopes to better serve the community by decreasing theft and thereby keeping library materials available to all patrons who wish to use them.
The library has added new subscriptions which include The Wall Street Journal, Cooking with Paula Deen, and Country Sample. Stop by the library to see them all.
