Celebrating 35 Years of Serving the Community

As we mark our 35th year of serving the Richmond community, we can reflect back on many significant achievements that have enhanced our customers' library experience and changed the face of libraries.

A world leader in implementing unique approaches to library service, our Ironwood "Library of the Future" with its PowerWall displays and comfy living room is one-of-a-kind. Another high profile innovation is the unique Ralphy card for kids, the worlds first round library card, designed by local author/illustrator Trevor Lai. And finally, hosting over 46,000 visitors in our International Living Room during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games allowed us to show the world how much fun libraries can be.
