The construction of the new library building on the Monroe Park Campus is approaching a major milestone: the completion of the structural framework. Thank you for your support!

Stop by the construction site on the Compass between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and sign your name or write your best wishes on a beam needed to complete the structure. Any and all are invited to sign. Then join us at 2 p.m. for a traditional topping-off ceremony where we celebrate our progress by lifting the beam into place.

The event is free and open to the public. Parking is available for a fee in the West Broad StreetWest Main Street and West Cary Street parking decks. If special accommodations are needed, or for further details please call Gregory Kimbrell, events and programs coordinator, at (804) 828-0593 prior to March 16.
