By: Arlington Public Library

September 2, 2021

Starting September 7, 2021, Arlington Public Library will reopen two locations — Cherrydale and Glencarlyn Libraries.

Arlington residents and Library patrons will have access to seven open library locations — Aurora Hills, Cherrydale, Central, Columbia Pike, Glencarlyn, Shirlington and Westover Libraries. The Plaza branch will remain closed in preparation for a long-planned expansion and renovation.

“The Library continues to make steady progress toward filling an unprecedented number of public service vacancies caused by the pandemic and subsequent hiring freeze. We believe we are turning the corner and look forward to seeing more of our patrons,” said Arlington Public Library Director Diane Kresh.

All open Library locations will follow the same schedule.

Monday to Saturday Hours:

  • Monday/Tuesday: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
  • Wednesday/Thursday: 12 – 7 p.m.
  • Friday/Saturday: 12 – 5 p.m.

The Center for Local History at Central Library is open to the public by appointment.

Indoor and outdoor storytime programs are offered at multiple locations. Starting September 13, Library patrons can enjoy indoor storytime programs at Cherrydale and Glencarlyn branches.

Arlington Public Library will continue to evaluate service levels and hopes to expand hours and offerings over the next few months.
