The Fairfax Library Foundation is a private, nonprofit corporation established in 1994 and dedicated to providing supplementary support to the 23-branch library system in Fairfax County and the City of Fairfax. Through the charitable donations of individuals, businesses, and other organizations, the Fairfax Library Foundation sponsors programs within our libraries and in the greater community, and purchases much needed books and non-print materials such as e-books. Some of the programs sponsored include: Changing Lives Through Literature, that gives first time juvenile offenders an alternative to formal court action by teaching values through literature; Ready to Read Early Literacy Outreach, which allows interactive reading activities to be brought to preschoolers; Scholarships for graduate, undergraduate and continuing education; and the ever-popular Summer Reading Program. These programs thrive only because of generous private donations to the Foundation. If you want to make a difference for your library you are not limited in your options. You can make a charitable gift to be used for programs or other resources, buy books through the library’s Amazon Wish List, or volunteer your time as a committee or board member within the Foundation itself. These donations of time and money will substantively and positively impact your library system, and you can choose exactly the difference you want to make by designating how and where you want your donations to be used.
