The Campbell County Public Library in Rustburg has a new meeting space available for the public.
In addition to a large room that is used by the community and the library for programs and meetings, the library now has space for small groups or tutors or those needing a private one-on-one space.
Generous donations by Philip and Terry Jamerson, Bill and Ellen Jamerson, and the Friends of the Library enabled the construction of a glassed-in meeting area with two separate doors and a moveable divider. With a goal of flexibility, the moveable room divider was added so that the space can accommodate two separate uses at the same time.
The space can be used on a first come, first served basis or reserved in advance. It is governed by the same policies as all library spaces: no sales or monetary transactions may occur; the library reserves the right to relocate users to the space most suited to their needs; and standing reservations are limited to a specific period of time to insure fair access.
According to Library Director Nan Carmack, the space was created after seeing the need for more space for small groups to meet and after staff was able to identify an area that could be rearranged and closed in.
“The library continues to be a community center, where people come to collaborate, so this addition is perfect to meet these needs,” Carmack said.
To reserve the space, call the library at 434-332-9560, ext. 2.
