Sterling Library Expansion


The Sterling Library has been a vital part of the community’s educational, cultural, and economic development since the mid-1970s.   But the current library building can no longer support the community’s needs.

In November 2014,  Loudoun County voters approved several capital improvements for the Sterling District, including:

•  Renovation and expansion of the Sterling Community Center.
•  Relocation, renovation, and expansion of Sterling Library.

The new Sterling Library – 14,000 sq. ft. – is located at 22330 S. Sterling Blvd in the Sterling Plaza shopping center and will open April 15, 2017.
It will greatly expand the size of the existing Library, featuring:
•  Larger Dedicated Children's Area
•  Unique Teen Area
•  Larger Adult Area
•  Group Study Rooms
•  Individual Study Rooms
•  MILL Studio (Maker Space)
•  More Meeting Space
•  More Computer Areas
•  More Lounge Seating
•  Laptop Area
•  Dedicated Staff Workroom
•  Power Outlets + Wi-Fi Throughout

Below is the preliminary design for the new library.
