Prince William County Public Libraries recently held a ribbon cutting ceremony at Central Community Library and offered a limited tour of the library with new open spaces, designed for better programming and community enjoyment.
"Today marks a new, exciting chapter for Central Library and Prince William Public Libraries," Chair-at-Large Ann B. Wheeler, Prince William Board of County Supervisors, said during the ribbon cutting ceremony. "It represents a continuation in fulfilling Prince William Public Libraries' mission of bringing people, information and ideas together to enrich lives and build community in a welcoming, inclusive environment."
The renovations, which began in early 2020, also allowed the Ruth E. Lloyd Information Center, or RELIC, to return to Central Library after 25 years at the Bull Run Regional Library. The move will allow RELIC visitors more room and better spaces to research local history and genealogy.
"Central Library's renovation represents a commitment to bringing quality library services and welcoming space to Prince William's diverse community," said Deborah Wright, director of Prince William Public Libraries.
