Live Music for the Holidays!

Set the mood for the holidays with some great music. We will have live performances by several local favorites!

Our Henrico Christmas Mother Book Drive Starts Today!

It is once again time for our Henrico Christmas Mother Book Drive. Henrico Christmas Mother assists families in economic need and of all religious backgrounds at the holiday time. Our Teen Advisory Boards have set up boxes at all Henrico libraries for donations of new or gently used books for children and teens.

And America's Best-Loved Novel is...

“Part courtroom thriller, part chronicle of Southern small-town life, brimming with humor and delivered through the eyes of whip-smart Scout Finch as she grows up seeing her father fight for what he believes is right, against all odds. Don't be fooled by your memories from high school English class, this book is a powerhouse.” — Gina at the Mobile Library Service

Monsters, Aliens, and True Crime!

As the weather is getting cooler and the days shorter, October is the time to be scared! We have several programs coming up that embrace the spooky, the surreal, and the unknown. Be prepared for chills down your spine!

Learn about the new GRTC system!

Get up to speed on transit enhancements in Henrico County this Fall! Join GRTC for an overview of local routes and services, including new travel opportunities on nights and weekends. Representatives will be visiting select Henrico County Public Library locations over the next month to talk about the recent changes in service. 

The representative will have information on the new routes and be available for questions.

September is National Library Card Sign-up Month!

Librarycard blog

Your Henrico County Public Library card is the most important school supply. With it you can do so much more than take home books. You can check out movies, magazines, and audiobooks. We have Birding and Nature Exploration kits, Caregiver kits, and Book Discussion sets that you can take home. Libbie Mill Library even has American Girl Dolls that you can check out to play with in the library!

Congratulations to our Summer Reading Club Winners!

This year over 9,000 people participated and nearly half met their reading goal! That is a lot of reading. We hope you read lots of great books and had fun visiting the library over the past few months.

There are still three more Naturalization Information Sessions this fall. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will be at Libbie Mill, Varina, and Twin Hickory libraries to present information for legal permanent residents and interested naturalization applicants. The presenter will discuss the naturalization process and test as well as the rights and responsibilities of U.S. citizens.
