Library Services

Powhatan County School librarians empower students to Think, Create, Share, and Grow in the school library as they learn to harness curiosity, model responsibility, inspire exploration, promote creativity, and deepen understanding. Our libraries strive to create equity and prepare all learners for college, career, and life through innovative, ethical guidance and support.
