Nelson County Memorial Library
Located just south of Charlottesville, Virginia, the Nelson County Memorial Library
is dedicated to the flood victims of the 1969 hurricane Camille. After nearly a quarter
century of continuous use, residents of Nelson County found the need to revitalize their
library and contracted Train & Partners Architects to design a modernized facility.
With the consideration of population growth, sustainable building technologies, and ever
evolving civic uses, Train & Partners Architects proposed a two phase addition and
expansion to the library. The first phase, consisting of a 6000 square foot addition,
is to include a new main entry, new stack areas, and new reading rooms. The second phase
will replace the original library with a new Children's area, office and technology support
areas, ADA restrooms, and an additional array of public meeting spaces.
