About Us


Who We Are

Lives are changed every day at Samuels Public Library, located in Warren County, Virginia. Serving nearly 23,000 patrons, our library consistently maintains the highest per person circulation checkout of our neighboring counties as well as the highest visits per person. We fully embrace the mission set out by our volunteer Board of Trustees to

‘bring people, information, and ideas together to enrich lives and build community.’

What is Samicon 2020?

Each September since 2015, Samuels Library has hosted an annual SamiCon, a comic book and geek convention for all ages. Last year, the single-day event drew over 3,000 people to the library for a day full of fun and education.
This year, Samuels Library wants to use this event to encourage our patrons to explore the community by partnering with local businesses who have been hit hard by the pandemic shutdown. Our theme this year is “Readers Assemble! Discover the heroes among us!” We plan to run a month-long scavenger hunt around the area. Each week we will highlight a different handful of local businesses who have been “attacked” by a supervillain and encourage patrons to visit those businesses to discover the culprit or the hints they leave behind and earn points for their superhero team. They will also be able to earn additional points for purchasing something while they are at the business.
