Additional City Funding

On May 23, 2023, the Richmond City Council approved an additional $15 million for the Main Library renovation.

This helps ensure that all work outlined under the Building Forward grant agreement is completed while also allowing for additional renovations to the space. Renovations beyond the scope of the Building Forward project will be driven by community needs and desires, to be gathered during an outreach and engagement process that this funding makes possible.

This page will be updated as engagement and planning begin and progress.
