The Richard A. Tucker Memorial Library is Norfolk's newest library. It opened in the fall of 2021 on the site of the original Richard Allen Tucker Elementary School, built in 1943 to serve children in the neighboring Norfolk Housing Authority's Oak Leaf Park subdivision. The school was closed in 2011, two years before the Southside Aquatic Center opened on the site in 2013. The school building was demolished in 2017, to make way for the new library.
Norfolk Parks and Recreation is currently developing plans for community oriented open space improvements on the grounds of the library and aquatic center. We held a preliminary public workshop and posted an online survey in November 2021. The survey results guided the development of two preliminary alternatives for the open space. We welcome your feedback to help select the usage of the open space by the library. Take the survey here.
