City Of Fairfox Regional Library

10360 North Street
703-293-6227

The City of Fairfax Regional Library opened its doors on January 26, 2008, as Fairfax County Public Library's first truly urban library. Situated at the corner of North Street and Old Lee Highway, the building is considered the eastern gateway to the City of Fairfax. Its exterior and interior architecture suggest a love of history and enlightenment, from the colonial columns and dormers to the soaring yellow pine ceiling.

The oldest library branch in Fairfax, it opened in a small cinderblock building in 1940 and was moved to Chain Bridge Road in 1962. It was called Central Library and served as the library's headquarters until 1982 when it was renamed Fairfax City Regional Library.

The building is well-equipped to serve the needs of its public, with a covered two-level parking deck, large meeting room and two conference rooms, wireless Internet access throughout the building, and dozens of Internet workstations. Cherry reading tables equipped with study lamps have built-in electrical outlets, and a 16-carrell quiet study room allows for individual quiet study. In addition to meeting rooms, a group study room may be reserved. The library has a collection of adult and children's books in Korean, and a large periodical collection, including titles in Spanish, Korean, Vietnamese, Chinese and French.

Very bright, clean, and beautiful library. Catalogs on iPads are available throughout the library for your convince. And the interior is just very pretty designed - wood and glass. I would definitely recommend going here with a kid or alone or even when you just need to get some work done on the computer in a quiet place. The parking garage is big and free. Printer/copier/computers available. There are dedicated sections of Virginia history and Korean books.

Nice looking library from the inside and outside. The parking garage is behind the library so it isn't very visible from the main road. Otherwise, the library is about as good as any other, and the location is convenient with access from two main roads.

The desk at the center of the bottom floor has some very rude ladies. I asked a question as a customer and got snark. I would suggest making sure they have better customer service training.

Nice environment . Sometimes it’s so annoying when someone keep talking loud regardless of others.

Not enough tables for everybody! Everytime I go there, I am having trouble finding a table to sit to study.
