Patrons also still have two days to take advantage of fine forgiveness for overdue books or free replacements for library cards.

The theme for this year’s National Library Week is “Libraries = Strong Communites” and “illustrates how today’s libraries are at the heart of our cities, towns, schools and campuses, providing critical resources, programs and expertise,” according to The Richmond Bugle, the county library system’s newsletter.

“They also provide a public space where all community members, regardless of age, culture or income level, can come together to connect and learn.”
