Temporary Location Closing July 10 to Begin Library Move
The library renovation and expansion project is coming to an end and the outside of the new library building is looking great! There’s still work that needs to be done on the inside including moving our entire collection into its new home and setting up public and staff spaces. Our temporary location (at 601 S. Oak St.) will close permanently and we will suspend curbside pickup service starting July 10 at 5 pm so we can begin the process of moving back into our library building at 120 N. Virginia Ave, which will re-open on Monday, August 16, at 10 am. Learn more...
In-person volunteering at the library is currently suspended. We will update this page when the library reopens to the public and volunteering resumes.
The library provides opportunities for area students to fulfill community service requirements by providing valuable services for the library. The Youth Services Department accepts a limited number of teen volunteers year round.
Students in grades 7-12 can apply to volunteer. Middle School students in grades 7 and 8 must be residents of the City of Falls Church. Anyone wishing to volunteer should pick up a volunteer application form from the Youth Services desk. This form must be completed, signed by a parent or guardian, and turned into the library before the volunteer can begin service.

Teen Advisory Board
For volunteers in Grades 7-12, the Teen Advisory Board meets monthly during the school year to give teens a voice in the library. Activities may include reviewing new books for the collection, decorating the library's teen space, suggesting the programming you'd like to see at the library, and more! Teens who participate in TAB earn volunteer hours.
If you have questions about our Teen Volunteers, please contact Laura Miller, Young Adult Librarian by calling 703-248-5034 (TTY 711) or by email.
