Prince William Public Library
Library Building Projects


Dumfries Neighborhood Library was the second neighborhood library to open at 18007 Dumfries Shopping Plaza on June 8, 1985. In that time, it has served the Town of Dumfries and the local community for over 30 years. However, times have changed since 1985, and the small community around the library has increased in both population and their demand for services over the years. As a result, the Library System and Prince William Board of County Supervisors decided to act and move the library across the street to 18115 Triangle Shopping Plaza doubling the size of its current layout providing more public access computers, two study rooms and a much larger children’s area. The library will close its doors on January 21, 2017 and open them up just across the street to a brand new library on February 21, 2017.
