Library considers move to regional system

SoVaNow.com / October 07, 2013
The Halifax County-South Boston Library Board will meet Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 4:30 p.m. in Halifax Town Hall, one week later than the Library Board usually schedules its monthly session.

According to Board chairman Bee Espy Edmunds, representatives from the Library of Virginia will be present to speak on opportunities for regional libraries, and how Halifax County-South Boston might benefit from regional status.

In the past, the local libraries have looked at the benefits and additional funding that might materialize with the formation of a regional system, but their request for a change in status was denied several years ago after South Boston reverted to a town.

Regional libraries generally serve multiple municipal entities, such as counties, towns or cities.

But Espy said the local board has been encouraged by state staffers to consider a new try at gaining regional status..

“We just don’t know how this might work out, but we are looking at all avenues that could benefit our library,” Espy said.

She added that a question and answer session will follow the presentation by state library staffers.
