Chesterfield County

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — The Chesterfield County Central Library reopened on Monday following an extensive renovation project. 

The remodeling includes an updated children’s area, a performance space, improved lighting and increased meeting and seating areas.

“I am delighted that we have been able to update and renovate this particular library facility,” Mike Mabe, director of library services, said. “Central Library represents the quality of modern library services that the residents of Chesterfield County have come to expect from their library system.”  

Part of the renovation included creating a space for the Chesterfield Cooperative Extension office. The library’s children’s area offers a view into Cooperative Extension’s laboratory.

Central Library now houses the largest business suite of the county’s 10 libraries. A conference room has been furnished with technology that allows for collaborative screen sharing.

The library’s makerspace also includes room for collaborative work. The makerspace is larger, includes classroom space, and has more 3-D printers and other maker equipment.

Central Library’s main entrance now faces Lucy Corr Blvd. The library’s address has been changed to 7051 Lucy Corr Blvd.,

The renovations have been ongoing since October 2016.
