Help us design your new library!

5 Nov

Want to contribute the the design of two new Area Libraries? Here’s your chance.

There will be two community meetings about the new Varina Area Library later this month. They will be held at the Henrico Theatre, located at 305 East Nine Mile Road, on November 27 at 3pm & 7pm. Architects from BCWH will be there and seeking input about this exciting project.

We are also welcoming your input for both the new Dumbarton and Varina Area libraries via this online survey anytime through November 28.

In addition to the survey and meetings we invite you to show us what you like about libraries and what you’d like to see in the new Henrico Libraries. Use images or words. They can be from around the country, world or your imagination. Give us a short sentence on what inspires you! We will feature your submissions on a Flickr stream that will be featured here.
