Friends of Access Services
The Friends of Access Services group was formed in 2005 for the purpose of providing advice and assistance to the branch manager of the Access Services library. The Access Services branch of the Fairfax County Public Library provides a broad range of library services to people with disabilities who cannot read standard print and to those with special needs who are unable to visit a local library. In the spring of 2005 a Friends of Access Services mission statement was developed and approved by the group and in the fall of 2005 the group was recognized by the Library Board.

The Friends’ mission statement says in part that the group will “encourage and support library services which are accessible to disabled persons.” The group will assist and advise the branch manager of Access Services in developing and carrying out such services. We seek to communicate with residents who may benefit from such services and who may be able to provide support.
The Friends of Access Services holds its meetings in the Access Services library, which is located at the Fairfax County Government Center, 12000 Government Center Parkway, Suite 123.
