Following in the theme of the Summer Reading Program offered at the Carver School Road Library Branch, “Building A Better World,” last week community members who live, work, and play in the Carver School Road neighborhood came together to build a better community.

During the meet and greet held at the public library on Lansing Drive, members of local police and fire departments, United Way, local churches, local businesses and several other organizations sat down with members of the community both young and old to discuss ways they can work together to uplift the neighborhood in Northeast Winston-Salem.

Following the event, Assistant Police Chief Wilson Weaver, who grew up in the neighborhood and attended Carver High School, said he felt it was his duty as a police officer and a member of the community to come out and connect with others.

“Giving back to this community and other communities across the city is something I really enjoy doing,” said Weaver. “Any time I have a chance to build a relationship with the people I serve, I’m all for it.”

Charlene Edwards, who coordinated the event and serves as the adult program coordinator at the Carver School Road Library Branch, said the meet and greet was just the first of many programs the library will be hosting to build a better, strong community.

“We know we will see you all again real soon,” said Edwards. “This is only the beginning. If we want to see this community prosper, we have to continue conversations like this.”
