DEAR LIBRARY SUPPORTER,
I and the staff of Richmond Public Library are working to make your public library a real community asset. We want to provide services that are of value to Richmond’s residents, and provide buildings that are a visible public presence in each neighborhood. Several programs have received awards in the past year, and are good examples of the range of services we provide: • The East End Library was recognized for its work with teen mothers. Programs at the library modeled appropriate ways for the mothers to read to very young children, and showed useful activities to use at home to build their child’s recognition of basic sounds and words. The Main Library and the City Records Manager were recognized for adding digital records to our library catalog that show the range of photographs and newspaper clippings available in the City archives. These records are used regularly for general research as well as specific questions about the history of Richmond. The library system was recognized for its collaborative efforts in early childhood education. The library has reached out to partners in the community to host programs for parents, provide story times and activities in day care centers, and plan appropriate programs for young children.

The City of Richmond has committed funds to renovate Richmond’s branch libraries and upgrade technology available in the libraries. Over the next five years, you will see both basic repairs and needed improvements to the computers, furniture and general equipment in each library. Working together, the Richmond Public Library Foundation and the City of Richmond can make your public library a true asset for our community.

Sincerely, Harriet Henderson Director Richmond Public Library

A MILESTONE AND A NEW FOCUS:
The Richmond Public Library Foundation is a 501(c) 3 charitable nonprofit established in 1997 by a group of dedicated library patrons. Its mission is to develop, administer and allocate tax-deductible private and corporate gifts to provide an extra margin of excellence for the Richmond Public Library. Its Board of Directors is comprised of leaders from the business, educational, entrepreneurial, philanthropic and legal sectors of our community. Its past milestone Literary Legacy campaign raised over $2 million dollars for improvements to the Main Library. After developing a three-year Strategic Plan, the Foundation has begun the Enhance Your Branch campaign, which hopes to raise several million dollars to improve collections, programs and services at the Richmond Public Library. Specifically, the Enhance Your Branch campaign has six new focus areas: Family Resource Centers – Providing resources and classes on parenting, developmental needs of children, family activities and language skills, the Centers need continuous updating of books, brochures, DVDs and other resource materials Raising a Reader – Award winning program that fosters healthy brain development, parent-child bonding and early literacy skills critical for school success. Funds will be used to purchase instructional materials and children's books, update marketing and promotional materials, and set community programs and events Summer Reading Program – Promotes reading as a family fun summer activity. Also focuses on helping inner-city youth retain vital skills during their break from school. Critical needs are funds for planned and structured summer programs, donations for prizes and incentives, and support for promotion and advertising Homework Help Centers – Offering one-on-one instruction, research help by licensed teachers and a safe, structured after school environment, the Centers rely on outside funding for teacher salaries, computers, books and instruction materials Computer and Technology Services - The library is a central point of computer access for many residents needing to learn basic computer skills, research for school, build resumes, search for jobs, or just to email and socialize. The library needs support to update computers and increase access to technology. Enhance Library Collections - The Foundation currently holds and seeks to build up book endowments such as the Foster Family Fund for African American materials, a National Endowment for the Humanities Fund for general collections and programs, and the Brayley Endowment for children's materials. The City of Richmond and the State of Virginia provide funding for general collections, while these endowments enhance materials in targeted areas of the library's collection.
