  Rosslyn Events

LOCATION: Central Place Plaza - 1800 N Lynn St

Arlington's Outdoor Book Festival is back this year on Bring Your Child to Work Day!

There's something for everyone at the Rosslyn Reads! Book Festival. The Rosslyn BID is excited to partner for the third year with Carpe Librum and Arlington Public Library to bring this pop-up bookstore to the neighborhood for a one-day event.

Have fun browsing thousands of used books, CDs and DVDs for sale on Central Place Plaza. We will have 15,000 books in a range of genres, including fiction, children's books, history, cookbooks, self-help books, coffee table books, fitness books and more. Prices range from just $1-$6 (+taxes). All proceeds go to Turning the Page, a nonprofit organization that helps ensure students receive educational resources and a high-quality public education.

Carpe Librum runs on donations, so feel free to bring your used books to donate as well! 

Stay tuned! We will update this page with our schedule of activities!
