Construction of New Baltimore branch postponed
Construction of the New Baltimore branch library, originally slated to begin in 2009, has been postponed indefinitely. The new library, planned to be built on a five-acre site on Riley Road next to Auburn Middle School, is one of several Fauquier County projects delayed because of substantial declines in county revenue.

The proposed library was designed by Grimm and Parker Architects, Bethesda, Md., to serve the residents of eastern Fauquier County. To date, some site work has been completed, construction and bid documents are 95% complete, and sewer and water taps have been reserved.

The 15,000-square-foot New Baltimore Library will provide:

  • Internet access, both hard-wired and wireless
  • Separate areas for children and teens
  • Quiet study space for groups
  • Large community meeting room with a kitchenette
  • Convenient book drop
  • Ample parking

The collection will include:

  • Books, audio books, CDs, and DVDs for all ages
  • New and popular titles in multiple formats
  • Current reference and nonfiction resources
  • Magazines for all ages
  • Electronic resources available 24/7
  • 50,000 items at capacity

Services and programs for everyone:

  • Information and reference help for all ages in every subject
  • Delivery of items to and from other Fauquier library branches
  • Access to library materials nationwide through interlibrary loans
  • Book discussion groups
  • Interesting and challenging programs for all ages
