Herndon Fortnightly Library
The Herndon Fortnightly Library got its start as a volunteer study club formed in 1889 and grew into a community library with more than 1,000 volumes over the next decade. The Fairfax County library system began partnering with the volunteer library in 1939, eventually taking over library operations. The current building opened in 1995 and offers books, educational materials, computers, Internet access, community programs and more for area residents.
