In response to their recent survey, the East End Library learned that people want to know what is new in the library. CHPN and the EEL are teaming up to bring you a weekly update which will include new reads and events. Your weekly updates will be provided by Adam, here’s a bit about our local librarian.
Adam is a professionally trained librarian, archivist, historian and educator with over a decade of elite customer service experience in the hospitality industry. Originally a native of northern Minnesota, he has also lived in the Mid-Atlantic, Appalachia, the Midwest, and Europe. Now a Richmond-er, he has found home in the city of his dreams.
Hello, Church Hill!
Your friendly local librarian here to let you know about the newest books to hit the shelves at the East End Library! We’re always getting new materials in, and I wanted to make sure that the readers of Church Hill People’s News are informed about the latest titles to arrive in the East End. I pulled a few titles for CHPN readers to consider, and full lists can be found below. Please take a moment to browse the new titles from the week of 3/19:

Remember that a library card with the Richmond Public Library is FREE if you’ve never had one with us before, and only costs a dollar to replace (for those who may have permanently “misplaced” their card). We now also offer an e-card, so you can get access to e-books, e-audiobooks, and stream movies and tv shows through our online resources. You can get the e-card here and can get a free library card at any location as long as you bring your photo ID that has your current address on it (or proof of your address, like a bill or a lease).
