The RISE Foundation has opened a one of a kind library for the state of Virginia: The All Black Library. The library has purchased and shelved over 1,500 books since opening in August of 2020.

This library highlights the stories, history, family, encouragement, faith, love, and relationships of Black people told by Black people from all over the world. They have both fiction and non-fiction books, for kids, teens, and adults!

Due to Covid-19, the library is open by appointment only. Call (540) 221-6964 and leave a message if you would like to tour the library and/or RISE facility.
