Library - Cultivating a Master's Staff Scholarship Support for Graduate Library Studies

To improve services, support continuous learning and to competitively align itself with other library systems of similar size, the Chesterfield County Public Library developed a system-wide scholarship program that provides financial support to staff pursuing advanced degrees. At this point, four have graduated and more are interested in pursuing graduate studies. The program was funded through a Public Library Association Grow Your Own at Your Library grant.

Libraries - Consumer Health Information Project

In an effort to increase public health literacy, Chesterfield County Public Library (CCPL) launched a successful consumer health information service. Our efforts to offer a Consumer Health Information Project (CHIP) were aided by an Express Outreach Project Award we received from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM).
