Woodrow Wilson Library Will Open Nov. 2 in Temporary Quarters
The Woodrow Wilson Library, which closed for renovation in late August, will open Nov. 2 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 will offer a 10,000-item collection with a sampling from every genre, a small children’s area, 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. The funding for the renovations is from a library bond referendum approved by voters in 2004.
