Description

Digital reproduction of correspondence between the City of Lynchburg, Virginia and Lucille Dickerson for the period 25 March 1947 to 28 September 1948.

In the correspondence, Dickerson notes that Jones Memorial Library is donating books to the Dunbar High School Library. At the time, Dunbar High School Library provided services to "colored" residents of the city.

In the series of exchanges, city officials seek information about library services for "the use of the colored people in the City of Lynchburg."

Included with the correspondence is a list of libraries in the city and which racial populations they serve and a letter from the Lynchburg City Manager to the League of Virginia Municipalities, requesting information about library statistics in the state.
