Courthouse Library, formerly known as Plaza Library, is a reimagined full-service branch that opens to the public starting Mon., Mar. 13.
The new Courthouse Library features contemporary furnishings, evening and Saturday hours, a new children’s book collection, and space for library programming such as storytimes and author talks.
A play space called “Arlingtown” is always open for early readers and their caregivers to enjoy, incorporating early literacy and developmental games and toys in a colorful, child-friendly environment.
Courthouse Library features the “Grab & Go” express book collection and Arlington Public Library’s “Library of Things,” including DIY tool kits and handy gadgets, such as a picture frame hanging kit, a solar lantern, and binoculars. Also available are circulating American Girl dolls, board games and early literacy kits.
In partnership with Arlington Arts, the prints of Arlington artist Amos Paul Kennedy Jr. are featured on the library walls.
Starting Mar. 13, library patrons can place holds and use the location's book drop.
