As the year draws to a close and we celebrate the holiday season, it is good to look back over the past year and recap the contributions the Friends have made in support of Oakton Library and FCPL in 2023.
The success of the Fall Book Sale in addition to our online and pop-up sales and the earlier Spring Book Sale, helped make possible a generous dona:on to FCPL Collections, bringing the total donation for the year to almost $33,000. These funds will be put to good use in purchasing books, e-books and additional circulation materials countywide.
At Oakton Branch, the Friends sponsored or supported many youth and adult programs, especially a wildly successful Summer Reading Program; and we hosted a Fall for the Book event in collaboration with the Library Foundation. We purchased a second 3-D Printer and supplies, and funded $2,100 in subscriptions. We also fed the birds, nurtured the gardens, and engaged the talent and generosity of Susan Gantz to refurbish our Art in the Pages sculpture at the front of the library. We think it is beautiful!
Our membership grew as well as we continue to focus on recruiting new members and promoting library advocacy. We just mailed our annual renewal letters to current members and are grateful for your generous donations and continued support.
May the holidays bring respite and joy to all,
— Corinne and Linda
