RPL 100 Celebration & Special Collections Open House
You are invited to an afternoon of memory, music, and community! Explore our newly-established Richmond Room, which houses our local history, business, and law collections. We will have artifacts and exhibits from our Special Collections available for viewing, and staff will be available to answer your questions.
At 11:30 AM, learn more about Richmond Public Library’s 100 years during a presentation on RPL’s history. From our roots in private libraries and our formal establishment in 1922 to the creation of the branches and 21st century services, we have lots of intriguing history to share. During this open house, we will continue to accept written submissions or brief interviews of your RPL experiences as part of our Stories and Memories Project.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Gellman Room Concerts Series, please join us at 2:00 PM for a performance by the Commonwealth Concert Opera Unleashed. Musical selections will include pieces from 1923 (the year the Library Board of Trustees was established) and 1973 (the year the Gellman Room Concert Series began).
