As The Page Turns (from J. Robert Jamerson Memorial Library)

The library has won third place in the Railroad Festival’s sculpture display contest with our “Jamerson Express” train filled with books. We are so excited to win “bragging rights” and look forward to next year’s contest and Railroad Festival! 

You local library is the best place on Main Street! We are a small town library with big city services including: internal and external Wi-Fi, movies, magazines, books, printing and lamination, access to free courses, e-books, homework help and other online services. We also offer an assortment of programs from preschool through adult and more. We may be small but we are mighty! To keep up with all we have to offer visit us in person, on our website, or on our social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram).

For the Wednesday, Sept. 29, Preschool Story & Craft Time we had an ACLA (Appomattox County Library Association) volunteer read the book “Socks for Supper,” followed by a sock puppet craft and snacks. We are trying something different and will be hosting two Story & Craft Times, one at 11 a.m., and one at 12 p.m. This week’s book will be “Animal Strike At The Zoo” by Karma Wilson (hint hint, the elephants started it).
