A New Event to Keep Kids Reading This Summer

Updated: Aug 29, 2023

Fairfax Library Foundation is excited to announce the launch of an exciting new event which will kick off Fairfax County Public Library’s summer reading program this year. Our inaugural Children’s Summer Reading Festival is designed to encourage young readers to continue their enthusiasm for reading straight into summer vacation. Last year more than 11,000 children, ages zero to 17, participated in FCPL’s annual summer reading program, and as a result of this new kickoff event that number is expected to skyrocket.

The community is invited to attend these FREE festivals held:

  • Saturday, June 10, from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm, at Lorton Library, 9520 Richmond Highway, Lorton, VA 22079

  • Saturday, June 24, from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm, at Chantilly Regional Library, 4000 Springfield Road, Chantilly, VA 20151

The festival will feature a wide variety of fun activities for children of all ages, including games and crafts, a bounce house, a mini zoo, snacks, facepainting, a live deejay, food trucks, and a photobooth. See our website for more information.

Since 1994, the Fairfax Library Foundation has existed solely with the mission to enhance the programs and services of the Fairfax County Public Library, the largest public library system in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Designated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable and educational organization, the Foundation provides supplementary support to the community by providing access to information, technology, innovations, civic engagement and entertainment, and by offering literacy and educational opportunities.
