June is finally here and we are excited to get reading this summer! Inspired by this year’s Summer Reading theme, A Universe of Stories, we have chosen some of our favorite titles about exploring our universe.
This summer, we’d like to challenge you to explore the farthest reaches of your imagination with us at the Library. Our 2019 Summer Reading challenge, A Universe of Stories, makes it easier than ever to earn rewards for indulging your curiosity. The challenge launches June 3 and runs through August 31. This year, you can customize your experience by earning badges for a mix of reading and other learning activities, like attending library programs and getting out in the community. 
From gaming to crafts and coding, we’ve got you covered! Check out these fantastic teen programs and more events throughout the month of May.
It is important to remember that mental health is essential to everyone’s overall health. May is Mental Health Awareness Month, so we are highlighting some of our best books and resources to help you find information on mental health issues.
Calling all super sleuths! Can you spot a plot twist coming from a mile away? Can you identify the murderer by the fifth… no, third chapter? Then look no further.
Next week is spring break and there is so much going on at the library! Here are just a few of the awesome events for kids and teens taking place next week.
We love celebrating Women’s History Month at Henrico County Public Library. Learning about incredible women and their accomplishments is always fun and enlightening. This year, we asked library staff to tell us about women who inspire them.
With the weather in March so unpredictable, it is nice to have a few indoor activities ready to go for unexpectedly cold or windy days. While we always love to suggest a good book to read, sometimes it is more fun to watch a movie.
Teens love to read, teens love books, and they love their libraries! This month, in particular, is all about showing love to the library. Henrico County Public Library offers so much more than just books: there are meeting spaces, quiet study areas, Digital Media Labs, and programs. The best way to show your library love is to visit us!
There are some exciting programs coming up in our Digital Media Labs! Sign up to learn how to digitize your old photos, shoot great video, or find out all about the lab itself.
