In preparation for the UCI Road World Championships (Worlds), the City today announced the main branch of the Richmond Public Library at 101 East Franklin Street will be closed to the public September 16 – 27, 2015.

The location will be used as a Unified Command (UC) operation necessary to support the Worlds. The UC is a structure that brings together all the major organizations involved in an event in order to have a coordinated response and to maximize the use of available resources. First responders, law enforcement, federal, state, local officials, universities and others will be working together on the overall management of the event from the library location, while at the same time managing jurisdictional responsibilities.

“Creating this type of integrated response team is beneficial to the race attendees and local residents,” said Richmond Police Department Deputy Chief John Buturla. “Generally, this allows us to enhance the efficiency of all the organizations involved and given the number of organizations involved in the Worlds, we simply need full use of the space over this time.”

Customers are reminded that while the main branch is closed, they may use other nearby locations in the library system. The library system has eight branches that will remain open and accessible to the public under normal operating hours, without interruption, over the period of the Worlds. Branch hours and locations can be found at .

Branches are located at:

Belmont Broad Rock
3100 Ellwood Avenue 4820 Old Warwick Road

East End Ginter Park (currently closed for renovation)
1200 N. 25th Street 1200 Westbrook Avenue

Hull Street North Avenue
1400 Hull Street 2901 North Avenue

West End Westover Hills
5420 Patterson Avenue 1408 Westover Hills Boulevard

The Main Library will reopen to the public on Monday, September 28, 2015.
