Current Friends' Choice Award Recipients
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 Awards for 2021 were awarded to:
- Barbara Hippe, who works tirelessly as our Book Sale Chairperson and coordinates donation sorting volunteers.
- Mary Colombi, our Second Vice President, who has a keen knowledge of books and works hard to find and sell the most wanted books to raise funds for the library.
- Ann Balch, who maintains our monthly newsletter and web site, and also serves as our Membership Chairperson.
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.
