2012 Public Library Bond
If approved by voters, the $25 million library bond will pay to renovate three libraries and build a new library:
- Pohick Regional Library ($5 million)
- John Marshall Library ($5 million)
- Tysons-Pimmit Regional Library ($5 million)
These older libraries will be renovated to add more public computers; enhance wireless access; add quiet and group study spaces; and upgrade old building systems to improve their energy efficiency and operations.
- Reston Regional Library ($10 million)
This library is currently located north of the Reston Town Center. Because this area will be near the new Metro station in Reston, it may be redeveloped into a more urban, mixed-use center with government facilities. As part of the redevelopment, the library may be relocated within this area north of the town center. Bond funds will be used for the site studies, design and construction once the library location is confirmed.
