The Library will create a pop-up space within Ballston Quarter for one month this summer, providing the community an innovative, non-traditional place in which to interact with the Arlington Public Library.
“Pop-ups allow libraries to innovate and engage with new users. We can experiment with different service models and add value to retail markets,” said Library Director Diane Kresh. “It’s a great partnership with Ballston BID and Ballston Quarter and our aim is to continue bringing innovative services to Arlington.”

What Can You Do at the Ballston Quarter Pop-up Library?
The pop-up is in two adjoining spaces on the first floor of Ballston Quarter.
In the first space you can:
- Talk to a librarian.
- Register for a Library card.
- Browse new titles in the collection.
- Learn about upcoming and ongoing Library programs and services.
- Charge your phone on the go.
- Kick back and read!
In the second space you can experience Alterspace, a immersive experience created by Harvard University's Library Innovation Lab, which gives visitors control over light, color, sound, and space. Pop through the curtains and use the app to create your ideal environment for meditating, reading, collaborating, playing - whatever brings you to the Library!
