The idea of Midtown says it all. It’s midway between downtown and the western suburbs, making it 15 minutes from virtually anywhere in the region.

Henrico County Public Library at Libbie Mill - Midtown

The Libbie Mill Library is 60,000 square feet, on three floors. The first and second floors house a conference room, a new state-of-the-art digital lounge, multiple study and meeting rooms, and a children’s story time area. In 2017, Junior Achievement of Central Virginia opened its new Finance Park on the third floor of the Libbie Mill Library. This facility will provide over 27,000 students from eight school districts in the Richmond Region with the financial literacy, workforce development and entrepreneurial skills needed to succeed. 

Located at the southeast corner of Libbie Mill Lake, the Libbie Mill Library serves the community as a center of learning, knowledge, and innovation. The new building is a true representation of the vision of Henrico County for its library system.

I was the manager at the previous Henrico County library location, and many people did not want us to move. When they see the new Libbie Mill Library, they come to me and say, “I totally get it.” When people walked in when we first opened, their eyes widened and they just couldn’t believe that this place, this special beautiful place, was for them.

The summer was fun. We as a staff went and daily walked to the different food trucks that they had. To be in this location and have so many opportunities was great

Jordan's Branch Trail

Along the southern boundary of Libbie Mill – Midtown runs Jordan’s Branch Trail, which is alongside Jordan's Branch Creek and connects Staples Mill Road and Libbie Lake West Street.

Perfect for a run or walk, the path presents views of the creek and includes convenient exercise stations and benches. Jordan's Branch Trail has lighting for visibility at dawn and dusk, signage to help users find their way, and emergency call boxes for unexpected situations.

Libbie Mill – Midtown was designed to restore life and health to the creek, as well as to offer residents and visitors access to the area's natural beauty.

They’ve built a collaborative space that also has a collaborative area to walk around. You can’t get that downtown. You can walk around, but you’re going to walk around among the skyscrapers.
