The Reston Regional Library is located in the heart of Reston and is vital to a community that lives, works and plays in Reston. One of the busiest branches in the Fairfax County Public Library system, Reston Regional Library circulates more than a million items a year and has a dynamic collection of more than 215,000 volumes.
For children, there is a separate wing with everything from board books for infants to chapter books for school-age readers, as well as special programs and a full-service children's information desk.
The Reston Regional Library has a large collection of newspapers and magazines (both in print and through online databases). For new Americans, we have material to learn English plus foreign magazines and a growing collection of Spanish language books.
Since Reston is a special planned community, we maintain an in-depth file on the history of Reston and have indexed the Reston Times newspaper. For people who are visually impaired we have a selection of large print books and special equipment. We also have meeting rooms available for community groups. Finally, for those looking for a quiet place to study, we have a Quiet Study room and individual study carrels.
The renovation of Reston Regional Library is part of redevelopment plan occurring in Reston. You can follow the progress on the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services Reston Town Center North page.
