About Chinn Park Library
The first regional library to be built in Prince William County, Chinn Park is located in the 98-acre Chinn Regional Park at the intersection of the Prince William Parkway and Old Bridge Road. Chinn Park was constructed on the old "Camp 6" site, a work detention camp set up by the State Justice System and operational in the 1970s.
The Chinn Regional Park, Chinn Aquatics and Fitness Center and the Chinn Park Library were named for Mary Jane Chinn and her family for their contributions to the Prince William County community. Mary Jane Chinn was born in 1827 and died in 1907. She is buried in the cemetery of Mt. Olive Baptist Church, still located on Telegraph Road in Woodbridge. Mary Jane and Tom Chinn were slaves who, after emancipation, purchased several hundred acres along what was formerly Davis Ford and Telegraph Roads in Woodbridge. They had eight sons.
Chinn Park Library is 25,000 square feet and features a dramatic clerestory window. Services include children’s and young adult material and programs, adult material and programs, a Quiet Study room, two individual study rooms, a prominent Information Desk, and a special service, MAGIC.
