One of the our busiest library branches will be back in business – and looking better than ever – when Pohick Regional Library reopens on Jan. 7. Located at 6450 Sydenstricker Road in Burke, the library building has been undergoing an extensive renovation since September 2015.

The $7.1 million renovation was funded primarily through the 2012 bond referendum.

“We’re so happy to be coming back to this beautiful new library and I know the public will love it, too!”Andrew Pendergrass, Branch Manager, Pohick Regional Library


When Can I See It?

Everyone is invited to the ribbon-cutting ceremony on Saturday, Jan. 7, at 10:30 a.m. Board of Supervisors Chairman Sharon Bulova and Springfield District Supervisor Pat Herrity will attend. There will be special activities for all age groups, as well as refreshments and music.
