About Potomac Library:

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 Potomac Library was built on a site of the Potomac Hospital grounds.

Potomac Library was officially dedicated and opened to the public on Saturday, January 25, 1975. The 18,000 square feet library now features a community room, a children’s area, and 151,000 volumes. One of the distinguishing features of the building is its collection of stained glass windows created by artist Jean McKee Dunivin. 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.
