Don’t want to leave your vehicle? In a hurry? Burke Centre Library staff are waiting at the window for you to drive up and drop off books or pick up your books on hold. Did you know you can put a hold on your materials for pick up at the drive-thru window?
Now you can drop your mail off at Burke Centre Library. We have a USPS mail box out front.
Burke Centre Library opened its doors to the public in June, 2008 as one of several branches to have the Leadership Energy In Environmental Design certification for environmentally friendly buildings.
Customers enjoy watching wildlife through the floor to ceiling windows while using the wireless Internet access or working on projects in the quiet study room. The library also offers 12 public Internet computers and a collection of over 80,000 items including over 3,000 books in Korean. Programs are sometimes held outdoors in the “Book Burrow,” an outdoor story area funded by the Friends of the Burke Centre Library and built by an Eagle Scout.
The light filled, lodge-like space is located just off the Fairfax County Parkway and is the only library in the county to offer drive thru services. Burke Centre Library’s knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff looks forward to your visit.
Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of the Burke Centre Library, Fairfax County Public Library receives donations to the Fairfax Library Foundation; the Summer Reading Program; the collection; furniture; and other items the library uses to serve its customers.
The Drive Up window is open.
