Friends of the City of Fairfax Regional Library

City of Fairfax Regional Library.

Friends of the City of Fairfax Regional Library have supported the Fairfax branch and the library system for almost 50 years. We raise funds through on-going used book sales in the library as well as our popular semi-annual BIG sales. As strong advocates for the library and its mission, Friends also support library-related community activities. Through these sales we are currently able to raise over $40,000 a year.

Funding Projects include: Summer Library Programs; Fall for the Book Festival: library programs for the annual Chocolate Lover’s Festival; literacy programs, children’s programs, technology programs, speaker’s programs, indoor and outdoor library furniture; support for outdoor gardening needs; scholarships; and annual April Library Month events.

The Friends welcome new members. No dues are required, just a love of books and a sense of commitment to our community.

The Friends usually meet each Tuesday morning from 10:00-12:00 to sort books and prepare for upcoming book sales. During the Covid-restricted library hours when the library is closed on Tuesday mornings, we meet from 1:00 to 3:00 on Tuesday afternoons. To join, simply show up on a Tuesday.
