Current Friends' Choice Award Recipient
The Friends' Choice Award was established by the Fairfax County Library Board of Trustees to recognize the valuable contributions of Library Friends members or volunteers. The award annually spotlights a volunteer whose efforts had a positive impact on the work of each Friends group.
The Oakton Friends' Choice Award for 2019 was awarded to Fay Fahs. Fay had been a long-time volunteer, working quietly to sort our nuerous donations, always dependable and pleasant to work along-side, and a willing cashier at our book sales. The Oakton Friends were greatly saddened by Fay's passing in May 2020.
No award was made in 2020 due to Covid restrictions.
Board meetings are generally held on the third Tuesday of most months at 7 p.m. in the Oakton Library meeting room. The annual Membership meeting is held the third Tuesday of January.
