The Fairfax County Public Library exemplifies the best of what a modern library should be – last year more than 13 million items were circulated and nearly 500,000 library card holders made over 5.2 million visits to branches and over 4 million visits to the library’s website. Demand for library programs and services grew this past year, providing an increase in both the number of library programs—to 8,934, an increase of nearly ten percent—and an increase in the number of total program attendees—to 172,630, an increase of over 15 percent.
The Foundation supports the library by directly funding important initiatives such as Early Literacy Outreach, Changing Lives Through Literature, Scholarships, Programs and Author Presentations (including the popular Summer Reading Program), and eBooks and non-print materials, among others, which make the Fairfax County Public Library one of the best library systems in the nation.
It is only through financial support from the community that the library can provide these programs and services, becoming a vital, interactive, educational resource. With your support, the Foundation is able to provide funding for programs and services used by all ages in Fairfax County and the City of Fairfax. We invite you to consider making a year-end Tax-deductible donation to the Fairfax Library Foundation via one of the following online venues:
