Introducing an All-new Library Website

The new year brings an all-new redesigned library website to a browser near you. The redesigned site launches on January 18, 2022. is the web home of Arlington’s libraries, the Robbins Library and the Fox Branch Library. Created in collaboration with Arlington-based design firm Bionic Squid, the user-focused design approach grew out of community feedback, surveys, and months of research and planning. New features include: 

  • Prominent library hours
  • Events calendar color-coded for kids, teens, and adults
  • An Accessibility Services page
  • Front page links to popular services like printing, museum passes, and grab bags
  • “Staff Picks” area featuring recommended reads
  • Category filters for digital resources and databases

“Our new site reflects the vitality of Robbins and Fox, and also serves as a virtual branch, a portal to our rich array of resources,” says Andrea Nicolay, director of libraries. “The goal was to make it easy to navigate, helpful, and good-looking. We’re excited about it.” 

Visitors are invited to submit comments on the new site via a feedback form on the new website.
