Friends of Great Falls Library

We Wish We Could but We Can't

Fairfax County Public Library branches cannot accept donations for the duration of the current COVID-19 health crisis. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Great Falls Library

In a small community like Great Falls, the library serves a central role in educating our citizens and enriching the lives of all who visit. Since its dedication, the Great Falls Library has continued to grow and expand its community outreach activities.

The Friends of the Great Falls Library are committed to support, assist and promote the library by

  • Enhancing library resources and services.
  • Offering diversified programming to children and adults.
  • Fostering a strong connection between the library and the local community.

As a Friend of the Great Falls Library, you have the satisfaction of supporting your local library and an array of programs, events and activities that may include:

  • Quality children’s programming such as story time, puppet shows and creative experiences that often involve the whole family.
  • Activities for young people, such as ice cream socials and movie nights.
  • Arts and crafts bazaars, book valuations.
  • Rotating art exhibits showcasing the work of local artists.
  • Used book and puzzle sales; an opportunity to enlarge personal libraries and fi nd great bargains while at the same time supporting the library.
