"The library connects us with the insight and knowledge, painfully extracted from Nature, of the greatest minds that ever were, with the best teacheres, drawn from the entire planet and from all our history, to instruct us without tiring, and to inspire us to make our own contribution to the collective knowledge of the human species. I think the health of our civilization, the depth of our awareness about the underpinnings of our culture and our concern for the future can all be tested by how well we support our libraries."

-Carl Sagan


We met our first goal!

We have just recently met the challenge grant from the Marietta McNeill and Samuel Tate Morgan, Jr. Foundation toward the construction of the new library to service the whole Eastern Shore of Virginia. In the months to come, we’ll be setting a new goal; your help will be essential in achieving it.
