Chesterfield County Public Library Wins VACo Award

August 26, 2015
Libraries

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — The Chesterfield County Public Library will be recognized today for recently winning a Virginia Association of Counties Achievement Award for its “Created Equal: Engaging the Community through Conversation” program.

In 2014, the library system participated in the grant-funded Created Equal program, which was designed to encourage communities to join in dialogue about the meanings of freedom and equality. The library worked with the school system, local media and local university professors to offer several events and screened three documentaries: “The Abolitionists,” “Freedom Riders” and “The Loving Story.” Participants also watched film clips highlighting historical events and took part in group discussions.

The Chesterfield County Board of Supervisors will recognize the CCPL for its award at today’s monthly Board of Supervisors meeting, which begins at 3 p.m. in the Public Meeting Room.

The library was one of 34 Achievement Award recipients. The annual awards program is open to local government members of VACo. Representatives from each award-winning county will be recognized at the VACo 2015 Annual Conference in November.
