Farmville Prince Edward Community Library

Central Virginia Library
Farmville, Virginia

The Farmville Prince Edward County’s Community Library is a 20,000 SF state-of-the art main library located in a public park at the edge of Wilck’s Lake in the Town of Farmville.

The Library interior showcases views to the adjacent lake from the adult, teen, and children’s areas. Large glass windows open directly onto a lakeside patio.

Roof top clerestory windows bring abundant natural light into the library’s large central atrium space. A “thru-the-looking-glass” theme informs the children’s area with a variety of mirrors, “rabbit holes” and fantasy picture frames prominently featured.

Public areas are organized within sight and easy walking distance of the staff desks to allow maximum service with a minimum of staff.

Library service features include a multipurpose meeting room, children’s program room, two group study rooms, computer lab, and special teen area with its own computers.
