On Thursday night a group from Albemarle County Facilities Development presented their ideas for the Northside Library at a public meeting.

The brought forward a rough schematic and pictures from libraries from across the country they thought had good aspects that could be incorporated into the new library.

Last month the same group held a public input meeting where members of the community and people who use the JMRL facility could talk about what they wanted to see in the new building.

So based off of that meeting Facilities Development where able to put together a mock up of what they think the new library could look like.

The features included computer access, extensive use of natural light, accessibility features, and even green spaces.

They plan to have a final plan by November for the new Northside, which might be a bit quick, they say, but they hope to be able to save Albemarle County tax payers some money by moving the process forward as quickly as possible, while still taking the time to receive and respond to public input on the project.
