Thank You for Three Great Years
After 3 years in Crystal City, the Connection Pop-up Library will close its doors on December 27, 2019.
The Library would like to thank everyone who has supported the Connection Pop-up Library and the staff who have worked there.
The Connection opened its doors in September of 2016 and was planned as a temporary pop-up project designed to integrate the Library into the daily lives of Arlington residents in Crystal City. This closure is a mutual decision between the County and the landlord, JBG, and was written into the leasing agreement.
Connection patrons are encouraged to use the Aurora Hills Branch Library, located 0.8 miles west on 18th Street, behind Fire Station 5.
Please note the following dates, which may affect your service:
- Tuesday, Dec. 3 - Connection: Crystal City can no longer be chosen as a location for new holds.
- Friday, Dec. 20 - External book drop closes.
- Saturday, Dec. 21 - Last day to pick up holds at the Connection. Any holds arriving after December 21 will be routed to the Aurora Hills Branch.
- Friday, Dec. 27 - The Connection Crystal City will close at 5pm.
If you would like to change your location to a different branch, please speak with a staff member.
Serving our Communities in Ever Evolving Ways
Pop-ups allow libraries to innovate, engage with new users and experiment with new service models. The Library and staff are very grateful for the opportunities we had in Crystal City.
Thank you for your continued support of Arlington Public Library.
