Does Lake Ridge Have A Library?

Lake Ridge Library Info by Karen Kruschka

 

The library first opened in the lower level of Tacketts Mill in 1985.  Those of us who are now and were residents then remember well the Lake Ridge mural that was painted by a local artist.

However, there was a fire in 1986 that damaged the mural and also forced the closure of the library for one month.  It moved to an upper level location temporarily and in 1987 returned to its' original location.

However, it was again moved in 1995 to its' present location in the Fairfield Office Park.  Phew - that poor thing has had trouble setting up a permanent household!!!

Lake Ridge is a 38,000 person subdivision with over 7,000 residences.  It has many features that are normally found only in an incorporated city.  For example:

  • Commuter bus service to the Pentagon, Washington, DC and all National Capital Area work centers
  • Five elementary schools, middle school and senior high school
  • Fire and rescue services in the community
  • Three shopping centers 

My husband and I have lived in Lake Ridge for 26 years and have 33 years full time experience in the Lake Ridge area.  If you are planning to set up a household and don't want all the problems experienced by the Lake Ridge Neighborhood Library we invite you to try our

Great post for Localism!  It is always great to know what is located in or near a neighborhood.  A library is an incredible asset for knowledge.
