Chester Library is at the heart of one of the most historic areas of Chesterfield County. Situated beside the Chester Village Green, its brick turret and facade reflect the area’s colonial beginnings while its warm interior with a charming train motif evokes the role of railroads in Chester’s growth. The library features CCPL's largest collection about the arts, and its music and creative arts and crafts programs are popular. Local artists exhibit paintings, prints, and photographs at Chester Library each month. The proposed Chesterfield Center for the Arts will be located adjacent to the library building, contributing to a multi-faceted venue for visual and performing arts, literature and creativity within a walkable neighborhood of shops, restaurants, and local businesses.
