Goochland ParentNet is a group of parents and caregivers, strengthening the community safety net by talking openly about youth mental health issues. We connect families to mental health resources; facilitate discussion and education; and provide support for parents and children. We encourage parents to: Listen (recognize signs of distress and crisis), Act (have a plan in place to deal with mental health issues), and Empower (Give kids tools to build resilience and access help 24/7/365). You can find Goochland ParentNet on Facebook: www.facebook.com/GoochlandParentNet, or email GoochlandParentNet@gmail.com. Check out the Goochland ParentNet display at the library.
In 1973, the Goochland Branch opened in a portion of the former Bank of Goochland building. The library outgrew the entire building by 2002 and plans were made for a new building to be built not far away. Erected in 2003, the new library includes a meeting room for book discussion groups and meetings of various community organizations, a Storytime well for children's story hours, colorful murals painted by local artist Patti Rosner, and much more as it expands its collections and services.
