Woodrow Wilson Library


Woodrow Wilson temporary quarters.The Woodrow Wilson Library, which closed for renovation in late August, is now open in its temporary quarters at 6066 Leesburg Pike, Main Level, Falls Church, VA 22041. The renovation is expected to take 18 months.

The temporary site offers a 17,000-item collection with a sampling from every genre, a small children’s area with educational games on iPads, 10 Internet stations, technology tutoring and a small (up to eight people) conference room.

“I am pleased we can continue to offer library services to our Woodrow Wilson customers while the original building is under renovation,” said Edwin S. Clay III, director of the Fairfax County Public Library. “The renovated Woodrow Wilson Library will be worth the wait as it enhances the many and varied needs of our users for information, recreation and meeting space.”

Woodrow Wilson Library opened as a 1,400-square-foot storefront library in 1961; the current building opened in 1967.

The renovated 14,410-square-foot building will include 93 parking spaces, multiple meeting rooms with additional capacity, modernized facilities and 24 public computers. There will be a sizable children's area. Though the library's collection is now a floating collection, the Woodrow Wilson Library will open with the same number of items that it had when it closed, about 50,000. The funding for the renovations is from a library bond referendum approved by voters in 2004.
