The Central Virginia Regional Library is proud to honor LaVerne Pervall and Patty Pugh, the women who created the Farmville-Prince Edward Community Library. In 1979 LaVerne Pervall, chair of the Farmville Reading Room, picked up the phone and called Patty Pugh, Chair of the Farmville Public Library. Pervall wanted to combine the two libraries and Pugh agreed. These two influential women set about doing just that.

The public is welcome to the dedication of a plaque and portraits on Sunday, Sept. 15 from 2-4 p.m. at the Farmville-Prince Edward Community Library, 1303 W. Third St., in Farmville, with light refreshments to follow. Speakers will include the Rev. Sam Williams and Libby Blanton.
