The J. Robert Jamerson Memorial Library welcomed new library director, Diana Harvey, at a reception last Thursday. The reception was held at the library as Harvey mingled with staff and library patrons. 

Harvey is no stranger to Appomattox or libraries, especially the one at whose helm she now sits. She has many fond memories of visiting the library with her family.

“I was actually in this library through the middle of high school,” said Harvey. “We would come here for all the programs they had. This library in particular really does hold a special place in my heart.”
