Chesterfield County Library Director

Happy New Year!

As you make your New Year’s Resolutions, resolve to visit your local public library more often – diet and exercise not required.

The library staff members are working hard to make 2018 a great year for our patrons. 

Spend some time with us and enjoy helping to complete a community jigsaw puzzle, try out a relaxing session of Seated Tai Chi, check out a New York Times Bestseller, play a game of chess or checkers with a friend, enjoy popcorn and a movie, or just use one of the many public-access-computers to catch up on the digital world.
