Thank you, Library Supporters!
We are so grateful for the hundreds of library supporters who donated to Fairfax Library Foundation to enhance Fairfax County Public Library at the end of 2017 — thank you! We set out to raise $70,000 in our year-end campaign, and we’ve already raised more than $80,000! Gifts continue to arrive every day!
These funds will be put to use enhancing our library system for children, teens and adults in our community. We’ll use donations to purchase picture books for the underserved preschoolers in the Ready to Read program. We’ve also just authorized an extension of the Changing Lives Through Literature program at the Shelter House (a program for displaced teens)… because the teens asked for more sessions! We’re about to review Scholarship applications and grant awards for our undergraduate program and the continuing education program.
Gifts to the Foundation of all sizes have a big impact on the library system, and these important programs. This show of support from individuals at the end of the calendar year makes it clear that this community cares about the library!
