Updates from the Friends

Dear Friends,

Apologies for the lack of updates on this website. As always, our meetings take place on the third Tuesday of October, January, April, and July at 7:00 PM in the large meeting room of the Kingstowne library. As of today, our next meeting is October 20th, 2015.

After the recent library flooding, we are looking to our members to help us emphasize the importance of seeking alternative accommodations for our library. Our staff and volunteers have done an excellent job keeping our library open despite many setbacks. However, it is unfair to them, and unbecoming of a community such as ours to have the library appear in its present condition.

Please continue to support Friends by visiting our Facebook page, and following us on Twitter (@KN_Lbry_Friends).

Fairfax County to audit Friends groups
