Dolley Madison Library opened its doors to the public on July 9, 2011, after a renovation and expansion. The light-filled, energy efficient building blends into the parkland that surrounds it. Also nearby is the McLean Community Center and the Alden Theatre.
Dolley Madison Library was designed and constructed under the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program (LEED®).
Dolley Madison Library originally opened in 1957 on the site of the old McLean Post Office and moved to its present location in September 1967. Collections include a variety of books and media for all ages, with emphasis on popular fiction and nonfiction.
