“While I regret the temporary inconvenience of closing the library, the new and improved Woodrow Wilson Library will be worth the wait,” said Edwin S. Clay III, director of the Fairfax County Public Library. “The new library will enhance the library’s ability to serve its customers’ many and varied needs 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. The funding for the renovations is from a library bond referendum approved by voters in 2004.
