About Potomac Community Library

Direct library service to the residents of eastern Prince William County began in September, 1965 with the opening of the Leesylvania Branch Library on the first floor of the Prince William County Administration Building located in Gar-Field.
In November, 1972 a $625,000.00 bond referendum passed and the Potomac Community Library was built on a site of the Potomac Hospital grounds.

The library opened for business on December 18, 1974 with the formal dedication ceremonies following on January 25, 1975. The library has undergone several major renovations.

The 18,000 square feet library now features a community room, the Cyberspace Computer Learning Lab, a children’s area, and 200,991 volumes.

The CyberSpace at Potomac Community Library is a computer lab with twelve stations. Patrons can sign up on a first come-first served basis for one hour a day. The computers include the Microsoft Office Suite programs, Internet access and several educational programs for children. A list of free classes held in the lab can be found in the library system’s monthly Calendar of Events.

One of the distinguishing features of the building is its collection of stained glass windows. In 1984, the first window was dedicated in memory of Potomac’s first Children’s Librarian, Mary Flanagan. Additional windows were added in 1989, 1992 and 1993. In 1996, a stained glass window in memory of Marion McCoole, a Potomac Circulation Supervisor, was dedicated.
