Happy New Year

It’s almost the end of 2022. We have survived another year of Covid-19, some really cold weather in just the last week, We have tried to only be closed for Holidays listed in our policy.

Tried to have things to the kids to do [other than computers].

There were crafts for everyone, Summer reading, Holiday crafts and of course computers for the kids to use.

New books, new DVD’s , we have tried to have something for everyone.

We have fundraisers throughout the year. These are to help keep the library open and to make needed repairs on our old building.

We hope we have met everyone’s libraries need in 2022 and plan to keep trying in 2023.

Happy New Year from the Library! We hope everyone keeps coming to the library in the new year!

Reminder the library will be Closed December 31 and January 2nd for the Holiday…

Giving Tuesday

Dear Friends:
November 29th is National Giving Day
At the Richmond Public Library, we don’t library like we used to.
Yes, our library still promotes reading for all ages. However, we are more than a place
to find books. We have DVD’s, Halloween masks, 6 public computers, story time for the little’s, crafts for all ages.
Our library is vibrant and sometimes a little loud. Most days you hear the giggles
of happy children, the copier buzzing, passionate library staff welcoming you inside.
We are here to help you and everyone in our community. In return, a couple of times of
year, we ask you to consider helping us. Please consider donating to the library
today [November 29, 2022]. With gifts from generous people like you, we can continue to expand our
services, offer free public programs, and fund new ideas – ensuring the long-term
vitality of our library.
Please join us by making your gift online via the Northeast Kansas Library System at
https://foundation.nekls.org/ or mail your check to 206 S. Broadway. We thank you in
advance for your support of our library and our community.
Happy Holidays!
