New Covie-19 Rules April 2021

At the regular monthly meeting of the Richmond Public Library Board of Trustees we once again went over our Covid rules for the library. We have been going over them monthly to see what needs to stay the same and what can be changed.

Here are the new rules:

Face Masks are Recommended

Please Social Distance

Please use Hand Sanitizer when you come in the library

The library will offer In-Library programing with limited space and grab n go for all our crafts. All programing will now require a sign up sheet

2 Computers for public use are now open

Still Closed on Saturday. May 1st is the date set to be open on Saturday again.

Thank you for all you for all your patience during all this covid stuff. We hope you feel safe to come and visit us at the library!…

National Library Giving Day

Richmond Public Library is raising funds through a Library Giving Day campaign. This one-day-online fundraising event will occur on Thursday, April 7, 2021 and we encourage patrons and library Lovers to make a gift the Richmond Public Library. This campaign reminds us that libraries, small and large, serve as a cornerstone for our communities. In addition to well-loved books, we have dvd’s, free access to the internet, computers for your use. There are events year round at the library, craft day for most holidays, Summer reading program in the summer and of course Friday food club for the adults. We miss everyone terribly and hope to open again soon!
Always remember
“Reading can take you all the places you can’t afford to go!”
To donate go to our website at and click the librarygivingday link.
During this time of covid-19 we have still offered crafts for the adults and kids, only instead of doing them in the library we have been offering grab n go crafts. We are doing what we can to give everyone something to do with the Covid and the weather we do what we can for our patrons.
