Library Project

$24 million  proposed for Libraries

Fairfield Library 3 The bond issue for libraries would provide $24 million, or 6 percent of the total, for a new Fairfield Area Library. The facility would be built on North Laburnum Avenue across from the Eastern Henrico Recreation Center.

The library would be comparable to Henrico’s other modern area libraries, including Twin Hickory and Tuckahoe, which have 40,000 and 53,000 square feet, respectively.

The existing Fairfield Area Library, 1001 N. Laburnum Ave., opened in 1976 and totals 24,000 square feet.
