$24 million approved for Libraries

The new Fairfield Area Library
Grand opening celebration in October 2019








The bond issue for libraries provided $24 million for a new Fairfield Area Library. The library opened in October 2019 on North Laburnum Avenue, across from the Eastern Henrico Recreation Center, and features 44,803 square feet of space across its two levels – more than double the size of the former Fairfield Area Library. The new facility is certified LEED Gold and is comparable to Henrico’s other modern area libraries, including Twin Hickory and Tuckahoe.
