Amazon Wish List - Fairfax Library Foundation

Public libraries are the great equalizers in society: everyone – regardless of income, birthplace, or education – is invited to expand his or her mind and access critical community resources. Today, while public funding dwindles, organizations like Fairfax Library Foundation make all the difference. The Foundation supports Fairfax County’s network of 23 public libraries, providing essential funding for programs and services that benefit more than 1 million residents.
In an age when libraries are needed more than ever, the Foundation helps them flourish. So can you. On #GivingTuesday, support your Fairfax County Public Library by donating to Fairfax Library Foundation

This program is a way to make a tangible difference for your library! Purchase a book from the Amazon Wish List & donate to the library. Thank you!
