This is my favorite Fairfax County library. It’s always peaceful and quiet here, with tons of natural light and plentiful seating. The cushioned armchairs around the perimeter all have small desk attachments and plenty of electrical outlets anywhere you choose to sit. The librarians are great and will go above and beyond to help you find what you’re looking for. I enjoy this library both for working and relaxing.

A gorgeous library worth an extended stay. I relaxed with Dickinson and prayed all night away. Amen.

Nice library! Not only is it wide open, bright, and pleasant to browse through, but has a selection I find very good for a library of it's size.

Not sure where the other reviewer got their info. The library is open until 9pm Monday through Thurs and open on the weekend until 5 or 6. They're rennovating soon so call before you go. Pretty good selection even though it's small. Never busy.
