Just a friendly reminder if you’re seeking library books from the LCNV collection but don’t live within a convenient driving distance, we can still offer books and resources to you!

1.  Library Thing

You can view a listing of everything our library has to offer including tapes and CDs!  Each item is tagged with its call number and a variety of categories that might help you identify other similar resources.  It does not show what books are checked out, but you can call (703-237-0866) or email (library@lcnv.org) to verify.

2.  Fairfax County Inter-library loan

If you live in FAirfax County, the library system has generously offered to let us send ships from Thomas Jefferson Library to other Fairfax County libraries.  We can send books to you with this system, but you still have to drop them off here at the LCNVoffice for returns.

3. After Hours Drop-box

LCNV’s office hours are 9-5 Monday through Friday when most of the metro area is also busy working or commuting.  However, to make book borrowing easier, you can return or pick up using our drop box outside the office!  Call or email the librarians for instructions!

4. Giveaway materials

Every once and a while, a tutor or teacher cleans out their home libraries and donate to LCNV.  Any redundant material, we leave out for volunteers as a giveaway.  We just got several boxes from a former ESL teacher with great titles like Longman’s Grammar Series Focus on Grammar and Cambridge University’s Clear Speech.  Feel free to stop by and see if there is anything of use for you.

I hope you’ll make use of these wonderful services and give us suggestions of books or services that might inprove our system!
