Isaac F. Umberhine Public Library
86 Main Street
Preamble to the Bylaws of the Richmond Library Association "In view of the real benefits that flow from the culture of pure literary tastes, and earnestly desiring to establish in our community, literary privileges, we the subscribers voluntarily associate ourselves for the purposes of making, for our mutual improvement and pleasure, a collection of books which we hope and trust may prove the nucleus of an enduring and valuable library."
The Richmond Library Association was incorporated January 31, 1868. It supports the Isaac Umberhine Public Library. The Library is administered by the Board of Trustees of the Association, who are elected by the membership.
The Association's annual meeting is held in April with election of officers and trustees for the coming year. It is a time to review the past year, to see what goals have been achieved, and a setting of new goals towards the betterment of the Library for the coming year.
In 1935 Isaac and Nettie Umberhine bequeathed their home to the Richmond Library Association. Since then the Library's collection of books has steadily increased in numbers and in formats. The Library makes books, audio tapes, and video tapes available to the public.
