The George W. Hawkes Downtown Library is a hub for all members of the Arlington community. The new library is designed to meet the technological and educational needs of a vibrant, modern society. With three levels, 80,000 square feet of community spaces, meeting rooms, computers, rooftop gardens, and of course books, there is something for everyone. This new state of the art library houses a collection of approximately 200,000 print and electronic items and provides spaces for users of all ages, including dedicated areas for children, teens and adult literacy. The Downtown Library will also include special collections such as Genealogy and Local History.
Other features include WiFi perches and technology help desks, a digital art lab and makerspace, hearing loops, an outdoor plaza, and three distinctly designed floors to meet a variety of tastes and preferences. The Downtown Library is full of comfortable places to read, study, and work. Relax with an interesting title in reading nooks and cozy chairs on every level. Explore each floor to find them all!
