Friends of the Pohick Regional Library Sponsor Library Foundation’s Fundraising Event

Fairfax Library Foundation proudly recognizes the Friends of the Pohick Regional Library for their charitable contribution of $20,000 to enhance Fairfax County Public Library programs and services. This donation makes the Friends of the Pohick Library publisher-level sponsors for the Foundation’s 2014 A Library Jubilee! to be held on Oct. 18, 2014 at the City of Fairfax Regional Library. The Friends of the Pohick Library join with other Jubilee sponsors, including Friends of the Burke Centre Library, Friends of the Kings Park Library, A.J Dwoskin & Associates, ExxonMobil, Friends of the George Mason Library, and Friends of the Oakton Library, to enrich the library.

In addition to supporting FCPL through generous donations to the Foundation, The Friends of the Pohick Regional Library fund valuable improvements and additions at their library branch, including steel shelving, study chairs, book trucks, and story rugs. Their dedication to expanding library services, at the Pohick branch as well as within the other 22 branches of FCPL, has allowed the Friends to be an integral part of the Fairfax community.

A Library Jubilee! is the Foundation’s largest annual fundraising event, last year netting over $110,000 to enhance Fairfax County Public Library. This year’s celebration will commemorate 75 years of quality library service, as well as the 20th anniversary of Fairfax Library Foundation.
