We’re Everywhere You Are

From humble beginnings in 1939, the Fairfax County Public Library has grown to 23 branches. There is a library branch within a 15-minute drive of every Fairfax County resident. But we offer an array of services that are available almost anywhere and at anytime that a resident needs them. For a sampling of these services, see the We're Everywhere You Are Web page on our Web site.

The library offers access from home and work to our catalog, databases, downloadable eBooks, eAudiobooks, eVideo and more. We sponsor programs featuring well-known writers in our Perspectives Series. Our Early Literacy Specialist introduces preschoolers and their families to the many services libraries offer. Individuals with disabilities have access to Talking Books by mail.

And of course, there are books galore on every subject imaginable.

As part of our celebration, we would like to know what you value most and what library services are most useful to you. Share your comments here.
