Daughters contribute to library

Published 1:00 pm Wednesday, December 6, 2023

Each year, on or around Oct. 11, the Judith Randolph-Longwood Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, donates children’s books about the Revolutionary War to the Barbara Rose Johns Farmville-Prince Edward Community Library.

This date is significant, since 133 years ago, the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, was founded to perpetuate the memory of heroes who fought for, and won, the freedoms we enjoy. The Judith Randolph-Longwood Chapter Day of Service committee, headed by Rebecca Maxwell and aided by Myra Green and Sarah Stokes, works with the staff of our local library to obtain new titles to add to the collection. This year, five new books have been added to the shelves.
