About Richland Library Main
The dramatic and visually exciting design of the Main Library, which opened February 14, 1993, attracts many visitors. Southern Accents, the magazine of fine Southern interiors and gardens, has praised the library for its "exhilarating light-filled spaces, each of four levels almost one acre in size" in describing the beauty of the 242,000 square foot facility. "The stunning and budget-conscious design of (the) library is a model for all cities, " the magazine said.
A wide variety of materials and services is available in the library's Information Services and at Film & Sound as well as in the 20,000 square foot Children's Room, one of the largest in the country.
A state-of-the-art automated system uses the latest technology to help you access information not only from library materials but also from national and international databases.
