How does a library benefit Charles City County?

A place to gather

When Marjorie Yates’ children were younger, the Heritage Library gave her an outlet. It was a place where she could catch up with friends and find out what was going on in town, while indulging her love of reading. “The library was our home away from home. My children were coming to the library before they could walk or talk,” she says. Her children are now 10, 14, and 17, but the library is still an integral part of the whole family’s lives. However, these days, because both Charles City and New Kent facilities have limited collections and hours, she has had to fill the gap with memberships at libraries in nearby cities and counties. A library, she says, is all about “comfort.”
