Thoughts From County Native and Arlington Public Library Director, Diane Kresh
Thank you for your patience regarding the new hours for the Cherrydale and Glencarlyn branch libraries. Beginning the week of July 1, they will be open Thursdays, 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., and Fridays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. These times were chosen after getting feedback from those communities.
We’ve issued a news release, which also explains changes in some library fees, also beginning July 1, the start of the new fiscal year.
Finally, we’re still awaiting word on a closing date for the old Westover Branch Library as construction continues for the new Westover facility down the street. Programs will continue at the old Westover building except those summer reading events already slated for the Lee Center at 5722 Lee Highway. Please check the Library website for schedules or you can call the Westover staff at 703-228-5260.
Thanks again for your patience.
