How does a library benefit Charles City County?

Opportunities for
adult education

Harold Adkins was exposed to his first large library in high school in Oklahoma. There, he started reading for pleasure and has been reading ever since. At 71, Adkins is partial to mysteries by James Patterson, Patricia Cornwell and Lisa Gardner. Since retiring in 1999, he devours about a book and a half a week. Adkins, who is a Chickahominy elder, credits the Heritage Library for broadening his people’s reading base. But he feels there is also the opportunity for the library to provide resources for the Chickahominy people that the tribe cannot afford. In its meetings, the tribe has discussed the need for adult education as well as a relaxed setting where people can come together. Adkins sees the library as a resource that extends far beyond books.
