JRVLS approves library plans: Board plans to circulate petition to put project on the ballot


Plans for a new, consolidated library for the James River Valley Library System were approved Tuesday, and the JRVLS Library Board intends to circulate a petition to put the building project on the ballot for voters.

“We have a lot more drawings to do once these are approved as a basic plan. Then there will be little tweaks and so on, and the details will be added,” said JRVLS Library Director Joe Rector.
