The Fairfax Library Foundation is hosting a 25th Anniversary Jubilee look at the foundation’s past they hope will help fund its future.
The foundation is scheduled for Saturday, April 6 from 5:30-8 p.m. at the Tysons-Pimmit Regional Library (7584 Leesburg Pike).
The event will include cocktails, a silent auction, and a “wall of donuts.” Attendees will have a chance to network with foundation staff and its Board of Directors.
“All net proceeds benefit the Fairfax County Public Library,” the foundation says.
Tickets are $45 per person or $80 for a pair of tickets. A local librarian’s ticket can also be sponsored for $40.
“Libraries are a great equalizer,” Lisa Bryant, executive director of the Fairfax Library Foundation, said in a promotional video. “Individuals can come and expand their mind on any level of things. It’s important that as a foundation we are driving the funds that continue to move the innovation and the library forward so the next generations can continue to enjoy all that we have to offer.”

The anticipated cost of renovating Patrick Henry Library has escalated in recent years, leading Fairfax County to seek a bigger contribution from the Town of Vienna.
The Vienna Town Council agreed on Monday (Dec. 4) to raise the town’s cap on funding for the new library’s construction to approximately $4.7 million — a $590,000 increase from the previous maximum set in 2020.
