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 500,000 items a year and has a dynamic collection of approximately 145,000 items.
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 and assist with citezenship applications, plus foreign magazines and a growing collection of books in Korean, Spanish, and Vietnamese for children and adults. We also have over 10 English classes per week for any level of English knowledge at no cost.
Since Reston is a special planned community, the library maintains an in-depth file on the history of Reston and has indexed the Reston Times newspaper. For people who are visually impaired there is a selection of large print books and special equipment. This branch also has meeting rooms available for community groups. Finally, for those looking for a quiet place to study, there is 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.
