How does a library benefit Charles City County?

Informing the community

Social Services Director Byron Adkins believes that the library will play a critical role in the community. He even goes so far as to say that it’s perhaps even more important than institutions like the post office, the bank and the fire station because it reinforces the benefits of these institutions. Whether Adkins’ clients need to secure a loan, send a registered letter or search online for a job, the library provides an “endless resource of information” for them. Adkins hopes that a better equipped facility will be able to teach computer skills and interview techniques to the community as well as offer workshops on even more general information such as how to fix a pipe and when to call a plumber. To Adkins, the library is “a knowledge center” for the people of Charles City County.
