“The focus of our 20th-anniversary celebration is community and the library’s role in the Centreville community,” says Christine Jones, Centreville Regional Library’s branch manager. “We want residents to know about all of the resources available at the library: the books, eBooks, CDs, wifi, databases, programs, meeting rooms and staff. We invite everybody to help us celebrate 20 years of service and community.”
The Centreville Regional Library opened at its present location on the grounds of the DeBell Farm, one of the area’s last dairy farms. on May 18, 1992. A storefront library had existed in the Newgate Shopping Center since 1970, but the rapid growth of western Fairfax County required a new, larger branch in the early 1990s. Today, each month 29,000 people walk through the doors of the Centreville Regional Library and check out more than 55,000 items.
