Discover Even More Reasons to Love Richland Library!

As we celebrate National Library Lovers Month this February, I wanted to share with you some exciting reasons why Richland Library stands out as a beloved community resource, not just locally, but nationally.

  • Extensive Book Collection and Library of Things (LOT): Richland Library boasts an extensive book collection that caters to readers of all ages and interests. But what truly sets us apart is our innovative Library of Things (LOT). From kitchen gadgets to musical instruments, board games to outdoor equipment, LOT offers patrons the opportunity to borrow more than just books. Whether you’re exploring a new hobby or tackling a DIY project, our diverse collection of items ensures there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
  • Groundbreaking Social Work Department: Richland Library is home to one of the nation’s leading Social Work departments, paving the way for community-based support and services. As the third of its kind in the nation and the first in the South/Southeast, our dedicated team of social workers provides vital resources and assistance to individuals and families facing a wide range of challenges. From counseling and advocacy to referrals and support groups, we’re committed to empowering our community and promoting social justice for all.
  • The Market at Richland Library: Join us every week (new cycle begins March 20th) at The Market at Richland Library, where local artists, artisans, and entrepreneurs come together to showcase their talents and wares. This vibrant community market not only offers a unique shopping experience but also serves as a platform for supporting local businesses and fostering connections within our community. From handmade crafts to fresh produce, there’s something for everyone to discover and enjoy at The Market.

As the Media Relations Strategist for Richland Library, I am excited to share these compelling stories with your audience and showcase the invaluable contributions that libraries make to our communities. Whether you’re interested in exploring our diverse collections, learning more about our innovative programs and services, or highlighting the impact of our community initiatives, I’m here to provide you with all the information and resources you need.
