More than 300 visitors to the new Montclair Community Library recently got a sneak peek of the library on Waterway Drive.
“This is a long-awaited library,” said Potomac District Supervisor Maureen Caddigan during the ceremony. “Thirty years ago, South Lake Shopping Center proffered land for a library in this community, and the successful bond referendum voted on by the taxpayers was approved in 2006; and here we are today celebrating this magnificent building.”
Congressman Rob Wittman, who also spoke at the ceremony, said the community could be proud of the library and all the work it took to get the library built. He, too, said libraries are essential. “Our libraries truly are the hearts and souls of our community. They’re a place where people come together, where they can share information. They can share time. They can share company. They can come here and learn.”
Wittman went on to say that the library would thrive once it is open to the public in late December or early January. “Today is the first step in the process. The building is an important part of this, but this building will come alive because of what each and every one of you in this community will do to make it come alive.”
