Reston Regional Library
11925 Bowman Towne
Reston, VA 20190-3311
The Reston Regional Library is located in the heart of Reston and is
vital to a community that lives, works and plays in Reston. One of the
busiest branches in the Fairfax County Public Library system, Reston
Regional Library circulates more than a million items a year and has a
dynamic collection of more than 215,000 volumes.
For children, there is a separate wing with everything from board books for infants to chapter books for school-age readers, as well as special programs and a full-service children's information desk.
The Reston Regional Library has a large collection of newspapers and magazines (both in print and through online databases). For new Americans, we have material to learn English plus foreign magazines and a growing collection of Spanish language books.
Since Reston is a special planned community, we maintain an in-depth file on the history of Reston and have indexed the Reston Times newspaper. For people who are visually impaired we have a selection of large print books and special equipment. We also have meeting rooms available for community groups. Finally, for those looking for a quiet place to study, we have a Quiet Study room and individual study carrels.
