Friends of the Library Activities

The Friends of the Library operates a used bookstore at 74 Main Street in Warsaw that is open every Friday and Saturday from 10AM to 2PM. Currently, the store is temporarily closed due to the uptick in COVID-19 cases. (1/26/2021) The store is staffed entirely by volunteers from the Friends of the Library and proceeds from the store are contributed to the RCC/Richmond County Public Library for its children’s collections and programs. All books there sell for $1.00 or less and they are estimated to have over 20,000 books in stock. When Rappahannock Community College closes due to weather, the bookstore will remain closed.

The Friends also have a Book Discussion Group that meets 6 times each year in March, April, May, September, October, and November. Anyone interested is invited to participate. To see upcoming books they will be discussing, see the library calendar .For more information, contact Carol Shackleford at 804-472-4225.

This site is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services. It is managed by the The Library of Virginia Library Development and Networking Division.
