ARLINGTON PUBLIC LIBRARY 

Arlington Public Library

ABA is leading a planning and design study for Arlington’s Town Libraries. The Robbins Library, constructed in 1892 and part of the Town’s central historic district, will be revitalized with a new Teen area, spaces for technology and collaboration, improved amenities, and additional group study space. The proposed addition includes a dedicated storytime space and an additional reading area oriented toward the Winfield Robbins Memorial Garden, designed by Olmstead in 1911.

In East Arlington, the neighborhood-friendly Fox Branch responds to Arlington’s dynamic population growth and development with a new single-story library. The relocated entrance allows for the collections, programs, and multiple community rooms to become accessible to all.
