A Week of Stories

Tazewell County Public Library is proud to announce the Week of Stories from Thursday, April 25, 2019 to Friday, May 3rd at the Tazewell Main Library. Our four scheduled programs include a Poetry Reading (Open Mic), a Local Author Event, a Memoir Writing Workshop, and a Storytelling Program for Adults.

April is National Poetry Month so join us on Thursday, April 25 at 7pm for an Open Mic Poetry Reading. Read a poem (yours or your favorite), sing a song, or tell a story. You do not need to read anything to join us for the night.

Join us on Saturday, April 27 from 9am – 1pm for a Local Author Event at the Tazewell Library. Meet and purchase books from local Southwest Virginian and Southern West Virginian authors at this event. We will have a total of eleven authors attending the event: Robert Merritt, Tom Fugate, Cyrus Alderwood, Kari Kilgore, Maddie White, Werner Lind, Jason A. Adams, Kirk Abner, J.S. Crews, Mary Alice Barksdale, and Donna Fogelsong.

On Tuesday, April 30 at 6pm, Instructor of English at Bluefield College, Crystal Kieloch, will lead a Memoir Writing Workshop. We each have personal stories with universal meanings – learn how to start, and how to develop what you want to say even if you don’t know what it is yet. In this workshop, participants will receive the tools to help develop their own personal stories. Learn story structure, and writing techniques that will move you toward a solid memoir. No previous writing experience required.

Join us at the Tazewell Library on Friday, May 3 at 1pm for a storytelling event for adults. Storytellers Rema Keen and Deb Linkous will perform engaging stories that will make you smile, laugh, and think.  Rema Keen has performed in a number of regional and national theaters including The Barter Theatre in historic Abingdon, Virginia. Deb Linkous has told her stories at Crab Orchard Museum and many local libraries.

For additional details about scheduled programs, check out our website at tcplweb.org or call (276) 988-2541. The address of the Tazewell Main Library is 129 Main Street, Tazewell, VA 24651.

Girls Who Code

Posted by ehall on

TCPL is excited to partner with Girls Who Code, a national non-profit working to close the gender gap in technology. Girls Who Code Clubs are FREE programs for 3rd-5th and 6th-12th grade girls to join the sisterhood of supportive peers and role models, and use computer science to change the world.


3rd-5th Grades
In our brand new elementary school program, girls will learn basic computer science concepts in a fun and creative way. Guided by our New York Times Bestseller, Learn to Code and Change the World, Clubs spend time reading, discussing their ideas, working on activities and challenging each other to be brave.

See our calendar for our fall meeting times.


6th-12th Grades
Our middle and high school Clubs encourage girls to impact their community in a positive way through code. Girls are able to engage in fun and simple online coding tutorials, build community through interactive activities, and learn about inspiring role models. The girls then work in teams to build a culminating Girls Who Code Project, where they use coding skills to solve a real world problem they care about.

See our calendar for our Spring and Summer meeting times.
