Thank you Back-to-School Shoppers!


Thank you to everyone who came out to support the Reston Regional Library by shopping at our Friends’ book sale for children, YA, and educators!

This sale really does show our community at its best!  We saw kids using Summer Reading coupons to get a book of their very own; we saw long time readers find old favorites and take them home to share with a new generation (“Honey, you’re going to love The Velveteen Rabbit!”), and we saw young readers share new favorites with parents and grandparents (“Grampa, you’re going to love Dog Man!”); we saw veteran teachers dropping knowledge and new teachers building their very first classroom libraries.

And more than once, we saw people helping each other out.  Kids helping shoppers carry stacks of books to their car; a patron slipping some extra cash to a new teacher to help her clear her list; a college freshman patiently shopping for her friend who couldn’t make it home from school for the sale….

This sale has All The Things! Using entirely donated materials (which might otherwise have gone into landfills!), our all-volunteer organization puts on a sale of affordably priced books for teachers and readers of all ages, including putting books into the hands of some folks who could not otherwise afford them; and THEN we take that money and put it back into the library, strengthening an essential community resource, helping it reach MORE people and make our community stronger.

We love this town, we love this library, and we love what we do.  Thank you all for being a part of it.
