Tysons-Pimmit Regional Library will close for renovations Jan. 31 for 18 months.
But fear not, a temporary location will open around mid-March at 7700 Leesburg Pike in Falls Church to serve customers in the area during the renovation.
The temporary location will house new materials, periodicals, and a small collection of high interest materials such as picture books, reference and English Language learning material. The rest of the Tysons-Pimmit collection will go into storage. As always, you have the option of placing holds on material in the library system and have it sent to the pick-up branch of your choice.
Due dates for library books and other items will be adjusted based on the opening date of the temporary location. Materials borrowed from Tysons-Pimmit Regional Library can be returned to any Fairfax County Public Library branch.
The majority of the funding for the $5.6 million renovation comes from a 2004 bond referendum that voters approved. Renovations will include:
- new interior design features such as multiple meeting, group study and quiet study rooms
- upgrades to building systems
- LEED Silver design with energy efficiency improvements
- upgrades to power and technology options such as Wi-Fi bars and seating areas
Tysons-Pimmit Regional Library first opened in 1974 and moved to its current location in 1985. In addition to this renovation, library services will be expanding in Tysons in the coming years as a new development near the Greensboro Metro Station will house a new library branch.
