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, public computers, and meeting rooms are seen as valuable resources by local residents who raise children, work and retire here.
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.
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.
