Mary Riley Styles Library Expansion Meeting Date Changed

The date of the Mary Riley Styles Public Library Board of Trustees’ community meeting about the proposed library expansion has been changed to Thursday, Feb. 5, at 7 p.m. in the Falls Church Community Center at 223 Little Falls Street, the City announced today. It was originally scheduled for Monday, Jan. 28, but was postponed.

The proposed new space adds about 6,600 square feet on two levels. This addition would bring the overall size of the library to about 25,000 square feet. The proposed addition could be on either the east or west side of the current building, and the advantages and disadvantages of both options will be reviewed at the meeting. Exterior sketches of the proposed addition options, which are in the same architectural style as the current building, will also be presented along with preliminary plans for interior space configurations.

The Library Board will provide an overview of the proposed expansion project, including the need for both the renovation and new space and answer questions. To learn about key features of the project, visit
