Frequenters of Central Community Library may notice a few changes on their next visit.
Renovations have been made to the facility, which is located at 8601 Mathis Avenue in Manassas.
A ribbon cutting ceremony and small tour that celebrated the project’s completion took place at the library recently, according to a release from Prince William County.
“Today marks a new, exciting chapter for Central Library and Prince William Public Libraries,” Board of County Supervisors (BOCS) Chair Ann Wheeler said at the 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.”
Work on the library started earlier this year.
Creating space for the Ruth E. Lloyd Information Center (RELIC) was among the improvements.
RELIC assists community members who are interested in researching their family history and learning about historical sites and events.
The center is moving back to the Central Community Library from Bull Run Regional Library, which has housed it for 25 years.
“Central Library’s renovation represents a commitment to bringing quality library services and welcoming space to Prince William’s diverse community,” Prince William Public Libraries Director Deborah Wright said in a release.
