I used the Virginia room for research for my civil war book. I found documents that I could not have found elsewhere. I have also used the library of Congress and in some ways the Virginia room was better. Great library.

This library has the Virginia Room which is dedicated to genealogy. They have a number of books not available elsewhere within the Fairfax library system. Aside from the Virginia Room, this is a clone of every other library in Fairfax County.

As a Genealogist this location is one of the best research locations outside of the History Center in Salt Lake Center Utah. I found one of the most complete locations for Virginia History inside a branch library. It is like a library within a library....More
