Gayton Library closing for renovations April 23
The Gayton Branch of the Henrico County Public Libraries, located at 10600 Gayton Road, will close for renovation work at 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 23 and will reopen sometime in 2012.
The renovation project was funded through the county's 2005 bond referendum.
Library services to members of the Gayton Library family and community will continue to be provided at the Tuckahoe and Twin Hickory Area Libraries. Library materials cannot be returned to the Gayton site after April 23 but can be returned to any other Henrico library.
Anticipated new library features include a more comfortable and open interior, new teen space, an updated collection and an improved study area.
Families can attend storytimes at any other Henrico library.
