Fairfax Library Foundation is Children’s Stage Sponsor Again at City of Fairfax Fall Festival

Updated: Jan 18

FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA — Though the weather left much to be desired, the City of Fairfax Fall Festival, held Saturday, October 14, still attracted a strong turnout of hardy attendees.

In addition to sponsoring the children’s stage and being one of the festival’s Elite Level Sponsors, Fairfax Library Foundation operated two separate booths along University Drive. It’s estimated more than 1300 slightly-damp festival-goers stopped by either booth to say hello, sign up for a library card, partake in a craft, or purchase a much-sought-after Foundation tote bag.

In addition to Foundation staff and board members, volunteers from Fairfax County Public Library were also on hand to assist with the crafts table at the Foundation’s booth in the children’s area. Special thanks to Marina Canant and Katie Hoelscher of Centreville Regional Library, Rebecca Takacs and Karen Jakl of City of Fairfax Regional Library, Sara Winston of George Mason Regional Library, and Jacquie Smith of Herndon Fortnightly Library for their (literally) tireless dedication.

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.
