Logo of the Richmond Public LibraryThe Richmond Public Library was founded in the early 20th century. Today it serves Richmond, Virginia and bordering communities in nine library locations. The main library location offers a comprehensive law collection, along with free classes in legal research and community law, plus access to online legal forms and search tools. In addition to books, e-books, recorded books and DVDs, all Richmond Public Library locations offer programs and classes, meeting room use, free wireless Internet access, and public use computers. 

The initial pilot test of Morphic will be at the Broad Rock branch, located in an area with a historically diverse population (including a large concentration of non-English speakers). There are two bilingual staff and a collection of books in Spanish for adults and children, plus English-language programs for adults. Extensive children's programs include after-school "Homework Help/Reading Buddies." 

The Broad Rock branch has 25 computers, used by patrons for school and personal work, job searches, content creation, information searches, etc. Morphic will be installed on all of these computers.
