Annual Giving Campaign Announced

As one year ends and we look forward to the next, we hope this letter finds you and your family well. Handley Regional Library System is proudly wrapping 2022 on a high note. Having overcome an extended period of global challenges, we are excited to be planning for the future. Our goal is to provide more programming, greater electronic resources, expanded outreach opportunities, and even more effective collaboration with our outstanding community partners.

Your support allows us to make regular programming into exceptional programming, to make electronic resources that were once restricted to a few available to many more, and to create new and innovative ways to help our young people learn and succeed, all the while allowing us to actively research and preserve the history of this unique part of Virginia.

Any donation amount will allow Handley Regional Library System to continue to create solid bonds and resources for our community.

Please include your tax-deductible donation in the return envelope or give securely online at Thank you for allowing Handley Regional Library System to continue to serve you.

The library system sees over 370,000 patrons a year at all 3 locations – Clarke County, Bowman, and Handley – who borrow over 800,000 books, eBooks, audiobooks, streaming movies, DVDs, and digital resources.

“We have a lot of people who rely on us, a fantastic donor base, engaged patrons, and a creative Friends group that does everything they can – to support services at all three library locations. Our annual campaign is part of our yearly ask and a safeguard to protect library services,” said John Huddy, Director of Handley Regional Library System.
