We’re doing it again! 2024 Children’s Summer Reading Festival

Updated: Jun 5

Fairfax Library Foundation will reprise its highly acclaimed Children’s Summer Reading Festival beginning in June with two free events scheduled at area libraries:

  • Saturday, June 15, from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm, at Woodrow Wilson Library, 6101 Knollwood Dr, Falls Church, VA 22041

  • Sunday, August 18, from 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm, at Chantilly Regional Library, 4000 Stringfellow Road, Chantilly, VA 20151

These activities mark the Foundation’s second year hosting the free community events to encourage summer reading among preschool- and school-age children to prevent learning loss over summer break.

The festival, designed in partnership with Fairfax County Public Library (FCPL), will feature a wide variety of fun activities for children of all ages, including facepainting, bounce houses, balloon and caricature artists, games and crafts, live entertainment, food trucks, a photobooth, and much more. See our website for more information.

2023’s inaugural event saw more than 2,500 Fairfax County children and families in attendance—with last year’s total number of FCPL Summer Reading Program participants shattering all previous records as a result.

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.
