Slover Library

A stunning example of blending old and new, the Slover Library repurposed a historic former customs house and added a new six-story addition to create a building that is ready to embrace the future. As a result, the library won one of the 2015 Library Building Awards from the American Institute of Architects and the American Library Association. The new space is a popular community destination and creates a solid anchor in downtown Norfolk that is in full revival mode. Support Services Manager, Sean Bilby, says that now they have a “technologically modern library that is welcoming, comfortable and encourages people to stay to for a variety of activities including programs, games, reading, studying and learning together.”
