The Gayton Branch Library opened in 1988 to provide service to the far West End of Henrico County. In 2005, Henrico voters approved a bond referendum which included a comprehensive renovation of the Gayton Branch. In June of 2012, a beautifully renovated Gayton Branch opened with a comfortable, open interior, a new teen space, an updated collection, a remodeled meeting room with new technologies, an improved quiet study area, more self check machines, automated book returns, and a lovely garden. During the remodel many energy saving and environmentally friendly changes were incorporated, which have led to Silver Certification in the U.S. Green Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program.
