The books moved more than two years ago and the site of the old Roanoke County library is still vacant, but county leaders are now considering what to do with the property.
The building is located along a busy section of Route 419, across from the Cave Spring Post Office.
The Board of Supervisors will consider three options that include selling the property, finding a tenant who would sign a long-term lease or moving other county offices there.
Anne Marie Green is Roanoke County's General Services Director. "That building's been vacant too long. We need to do something," Green said in an interview. "The 419 corridor is kind of our Main street for Roanoke County and it needs to have buildings that are occupied for appropriate use."
Green says it's unlikely county offices will move into the building.
She anticipates a request for proposals to help the county decide if a long-term lease, or the sale of the property is the best way to go.
