Tysons, Great Falls Libraries to Celebrate Birthdays on Saturday
Two county libraries in the Falls Church area and Great Falls will mark anniversaries on Saturday 10/15.
The Tysons-Pimmit branch was founded by a friends of the library group that formed in 1972 and two years later helped open a community library branch in leased space at the Peach Tree of McLean apartment complex. Later, the county bought 11 acres near the apartment complex and used five acres for the library and the rest for a county park.
The library is at 7584 Leesburg Pike (Route 7) in the Falls Church area. For more information, call 703-790-8088.
< The Great Falls Library will celebrate its fifth anniversary from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with similar activities as Tysons-Pimmit.
The Great Falls branch, founded in 2000, has a new building that replaced the former 1,600- square-foot portable structure that had housed the library for many years.
The library is at 9830 Georgetown Pike (Route 193). For more information, call 703-757-8560.
