How Important is the Library to YOU?

You have a chance to share your thoughts on the library with local officials and dignitaries. (It is an election year so they will be listening!) The Russell County Public Library is seeking contributions and comments that will be presented to local elected and appointed officials at our Leaders Are Readers reception October 16 at 4 pm.

  • How does the library help or serve you?
  • What is the value of literacy (or numeracy--numbers) in your life?
  • What is the importance of information or reading in your life and work?
  • Why is the library important to you? 
Email your thoughts to libadmin@russell.lib.va.us or drop off your letter at either branch's Circulation Desk by October 15.

And mark your calendar! You're invited to the Leaders Are Readers event October 16, 2012, in the Lobby of the Russell County Government Center. The reception begins at 4 pm and program at 5 pm; the regular monthly Library Board meeting follows at 6pm.
