Main Library Design

    Date Posted: Thu, Jun 22 - 2:19 pm

    Question

  • Why has the city chosen this discordant design which makes no effort to reflect the historic neighborhood ?
  • Answer

  • The Main Library design you see reflected on our website is concept only. The rendering reflects the requests and suggestions of patrons, members of the public, and staff. Before any design is finalized or approved, Richmond Public Library will go through yet another round of meetings, surveys, and outreach. In the interim, if you are interested in a tour of our 1930 and 1972 buildings, it would be my pleasure to walk through with you and answer any questions you may have - and note any ideas or suggestions you wish to share. Again, thank you for your time in submitting the question.
