Columbia Pike Library to Temporary Close for Improvements

The Columbia Pike Branch Library will be closing for a few weeks due to building improvements.

Structural upgrades at the Arlington Career Center, where the library branch is located, have been on-going for nearly a year. The library has been able to stay open during renovations up until this point, but soon work to replace the ceiling tiles and heating and cooling ducts will create enough dust that it will be forced to close.

The closure is expected to start on May 15 and end after June 4.

“As tenants of the Career Center facility, the library appreciates all the planning and work Arlington Public Schools has put into this project and the entire community will benefit for years to come,” said Arlington Public Library spokesman Peter Golkin. “In the meantime, the library’s other seven locations will do all they can to make Columbia Pike patrons feel welcome.”

The following measures will be in place at the Columbia Pike branch until it reopens:

  • As of now, all non-DVD items checked out from this location will be due June 13.
  • Beginning May 8, all DVDs checked out from this location will be due on June 13.
  • An external book drop will be maintained outside the library. Returns can also be made at any of the other Arlington Public Library locations.
  • Holds will continue to be processed until May 4 at 5:00 p.m. After May 4, holds will be made available on the Central Library holds shelf. They can also be designated for delivery to any other Arlington public library.
