The Capital Facilities Division of Fairfax County's Department of Public Works and Environmental Services made a presentation about the John Marshall renovation on February 9.

Rose Hill residents petitioned Fairfax County to open a branch in their developing community. In April of 1963 the county responded with a storefront location. The Rose Hill community continues to embrace the John Marshall branch as a gathering place for its changing community.

The library’s collection, events, free wireless network and public computers are seen as valuable resources by local residents who raise children, work and retire here. Many local organizations meet in the Gladys B. Keating Meeting Room named to honor the Virginia General Assemblywoman. She served as the Fairfax County Library Board Trustee representing Lee District from 1972 until 1978, the period during construction of John Marshall’s current building.

The building is a modernist style with dramatic clerestory windows and an open floor plan, both popular in the 1970s. Outside the library, beautiful gardens surround the building and are tended by the Library Friends in cooperation with the local Master Gardeners’ association.

Come to John Marshall to stay up-to-date with events, receive help with your school project, eBook or personal computer issues. It is also a place to just read , enjoy the many free programs or see one of our guest performers, who are often sponsored by the Friends of the John Marshall Library.
