Fairfax Library Foundation will be hosting its fifth annual Library Jubilee, with this year’s theme, “Let Loose in the Library!” Oct. 5, 5-8 p.m. at the Burke Centre Library, 5935 Freds Oak Road, Burke. Thanks to many sponsors, especially Signature Guardian Sponsor, the Friends of Burke Centre Library, the Jubilee is the foundation’s largest fundraising event of the year, and all proceeds will help enhance programs and services offered by Fairfax County Public Library including: Changing Lives Through Literature, Early Literacy Outreach, programs and presentations, scholarships, and books and materials. Last year’s Jubilee raised a record amount of $130,000.
The event will feature refreshments, live music and both live and silent auctions. Guests can bid on a seven-day African Safari, themed dinners, costumed walking tours, autographed books, gift certificates and much more.
Even if you have other plans that evening, you can still help make this year’s Jubilee successful by donating or sponsoring the event. To purchase tickets, donate or become a sponsor, please fill out and return the form on the Jubilee page at www.FairfaxLibraryFoundation.org.
