2019 Staff Picks for Adults

This year was a great year at HCPL! We had a great time with Lisa Scottoline at All Henrico Reads, had a blast with Summer Reading, and opened the new Fairfield Library. We also read a lot of great books that we would love to share with you.

2019 Staff Picks for Teens

Graphic novels, thrillers, historical fiction… the teen books that came out in 2019 were amazing! We have gathered the best young adult titles from this year to share with you.

2019 Staff Picks for Kids

It is once again time for us to share our favorite books of the year. We are starting with our favorite books for kids (and those young at heart!). Be sure to keep an eye out for our favorites for teens and adults later this week.

Unwind Before You Unravel

The most wonderful time of the year is now upon us – the holidays! There is more to do and seemingly less time to do it: dashing and decorating and dining, and days and days of doing. PAUSE. Let’s take care of ourselves, and help teach our children how to do the same.

Do-It-Yourself Gift Giving

The gift-giving season is almost upon us! Here are some fun ideas for thrifty DIY gifts you can create with books from our collection. These crafts are great for beginners and use only a handful of materials.

Amazing Animals: Stories So Unique, it is Hard to Believe They are True!

Go on, admit it—everyone loves animals at least a little bit! You might enjoy cute animal videos, or even have pets of your own, and the library has a lot books with amazing animal stories. Get to know some truly amazing furry friends and learn about their adventures by checking out one of our favorite true stories. Better yet, check them all out and you can learn how a Canadian bear ended up in England, how a dog decided to go to the grocery store on its own, or how a dog named Glory helps to find other lost pets!

Writing Resources for NaNoWriMo

Every November, all across the globe, writers ranging from amateur to expert try to meet ambitious word-count goals as part of National Novel Writing Month. Here at HCPL, we offer a wide variety of resources, programs, and work spaces to support your creative endeavors through NaNoWriMo and beyond.

Explore Haunted Places and Ghost Stories

We are drawn to stories about ghosts, hauntings, and the paranormal for many reasons. For some it is thrill-seeking, curiosity, or a need to be scared. Others are drawn to the stories because of the very human history they highlight. Whatever draws you to the supernatural, we have books you will love.

International Police Procedurals

Armchair detective or armchair traveler? You can have it both ways. There is no need to choose between an engrossing criminal investigation and the adventure of foreign travel with a list of international mysteries in hand. The particulars of geography and culture found in the following selection of police procedurals give the reader an authentic sense of place.
