Knowledge is power

Nonprofit assists libraries, helps encourage reading

In 2007, when brothers Barrett and Cameron Roberts found themselves out of work, they turned to selling books that they purchased from local library book sales. The process quickly transformed into Shared Knowledge, a nonprofit, growing partnership with Henrico County libraries that works to provide funding for literacy and education programs in the area through the sales of books online.

Cameron Roberts said that the start in Henrico began when the brothers were approached by Beverly Ziegler at the Dumbarton Library during the spring book sale. She expressed her ideas for raising additional funds to support the programs run by the Friends of the Library, a volunteer-based group that strives to enhance, promote and provide supplemental funding for Henrico Libraries. > Read more.

In celebration of the American dream


In 1978, Congress passed a joint Congressional Resolution to commemorate the first week of May as Asian/Pacific American Heritage Week. Thereafter, in May 1992, the entire month of May was designated as “Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month.”

During the celebrations in the month of May, different Asian communities celebrate the importance and accomplishments of their respective cultures with a pageantry of festivals and government sponsored educational activities.

However, I wanted to expand upon the celebration of what it means to be not just an Asian-American but an American of Asian heritage. I do so by sharing our journey to and in this wonderful nation with the hopes that in reading this, our children can understand how people from different backgrounds contribute to the beautiful tapestry of the American experience. > Read more.
