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.
