Russell Memorial Library Of Chesapeake

2808 Taylor Road
Chesapeake, VA 23321



The Western Branch Library had its beginings in a small room at the rear of A.W. Johnson's store in Churchland in the Fall of 1963 as an experiment. With the opening of the small stationary library, bookmobile service to the area was discontinued.

About a year after the successful experimental library opened, a new branch was leased in the Churchland Shopping Center replacing the small one room library.
