New Columbia Pike Library Being Considered

Arlington Public Library officials are considering moving the Columbia Pike Branch Library from the Arlington Career Center on South Walter Reed Drive to the soon-to-be-redeveloped Arlington Mill Community Center, near the western end of the Pike (see map).

The potential move, just revealed to the public, may be necessary if an expansion of the Career Center eats into the library’s current space.

The revamped Arlington Mill Community Center is expected to have a floor or two open for the library, should it be forced to relocate.

The plan is being presented for public comment on the web and at a town meeting to be held at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 16, at the library.

“We recognize that any move presents challenges for the community,” a spokesperson wrote on the Library News blog. “We want to hear from you about how such a move would affect your use of the Columbia Pike branch.”
