The new Burke Centre Library, a branch of the Fairfax County Public Library, will open to the public Saturday, June 28, 2008, after a ribbon cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. The new branch is located at 5935 Freds Oak Road in Burke. The 16,720-square-foot building will have a 75,000-item collection, 24 computer work stations and public meeting rooms.
"I'm very excited about the new library," says Braddock District Supervisor Sharon Bulova. Consistent with Burke Centre's motto, the library reflects 'nature and community in harmony.' It's going to be a true community center and an attractive new landmark."
More details of the opening are on our news release.
