Friends of Oakton 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.

Oakton Library


The Friends of the Oakton Library was founded in 2001 in response to community enthusiasm for creation of the new branch. The groundbreaking ceremony was held on April 8, 2006, and the Oakton Library opened on Sept. 29, 2007.


The mission of the Friends of Oakton Library is to support and enhance library resources and services and to foster a strong connection between the library and the local community. As such, we are an incorporated 501(c)(3) nonprofit.


Since the Oakton Library opened, the Friends organization has raised funds through the sale of donated books, membership dues and individual monetary donations. These funds have been used to procure additional books, eBooks, audio books, CDs, DVDs and magazine and newspaper subscriptions as well as library furnishings; to support library and community outreach programming and events; and to contribute to the Fairfax Library Foundation. The Oakton Friends also maintain a certified National Wildlife Federation habitat on the grounds of the Library.
