The Shenandoah County Library System is moving forward with the redesign of the Shenandoah County Library in Edinburg. This project will be led by the Library Board and VMDO Architects, an architecture firm located in Charlottesville, VA. When planning for this expansion, the Library Board found that the current building serves an active user base of nearly 6,000 cardholders with an annual door count of about 100,000 visitors from around the county. The current building, opened in 2000, requires expansion and an updated layout to meet current demand and support the Library’s mission. 

The County’s goal is to build a welcoming, flexible, and functional modern library facility that better supports the full range of its community’s needs and aspirations. The program will include but is not limited to: additional multipurpose meeting rooms; expanded staff and support areas; expanded and flexible stack and seating areas; a significant expansion of the library’s signature Shenandoah historical archives, The Shenandoah Room; and site improvements.

This library provides services that are available to every resident of Shenandoah County. The investment in this public space is an investment in the future our community. To make this new library design truly reflective of the community we invite you to be a part of the design process! In May, June, and July there will be scheduled events and activities for you to share your voice and ideas to help shape the future of your Library. Check back at this page often for updated links and information about the redesign.
