Hollins Library Replacement Project

Hollins Library
The Hollins Library project, with planning and initial design scheduled in FY2023 and construction in FY2026, is slated to replace the existing Hollins Library with a state-of-the-art new community library. The project proposes inviting public spaces to include everything from books, music and movies to the latest technology offerings. HBM Architects is helping Roanoke County with planning this exciting project for the Hollins Community.
The current Hollins Library opened to the public in 1971. This is the next library branch to be reimagined for Roanoke County. The Hollins Library has the second highest circulation rates in Roanoke County. It also ranks second in the region for circulation. The project proposes enhancements including improved public spaces such as meeting and study rooms, children’s and teen areas and multi-purpose creative spaces. The design will follow an innovative service model consistent with South County, Glenvar and Vinton Libraries.
