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.
