Second Community Meeting on New Northside Library to be Held September 12

Members of the public are cordially invited to attend the second community meeting to discuss Albemarle County’s Northside Library project on Thursday, September 12, at 7:00 pm at the current Northside Library location at Albemarle Square Shopping Center.

This project will provide a permanent location for the Northside Library at 705 Rio Road (former Phillips Building) and also will provide long-term County warehouse/ storage space at a significant cost savings to the County. The new facility, involving repurposing of an existing building, will provide approximately 30,000 square feet of library space, and over 20,000 square feet of warehouse space.  Construction is anticipated to begin in early 2014 with completion late 2014/early 2015.  

The September 12 community meeting will be led by the project consultants, HBM Architects and County staff and will provide a summary of input from the 8/22/13 meeting and present the conceptual site and floor plans that have been developed, seeking feedback from the public to further develop the plans for the new facility.
