Washington Never More and Virginia's Eastern Shore

Looking for beautiful books that make great gifts? For anyone who has lived or loved in the Washington are, this book is a treasure. Washington Never More by Lily Spandorff is signed by the author and has some memorabilia included (newspaper clippings about her and her art, a Christmas card signed by her). The Friends of the Reston Regional Library have it listed on our Amazon storefront at $50.

A fan of the Eastern Shore? Here's another great option for yourself or someone else! This book about historic homes and churches on the Eastern Shore is a new listing of a scarce book with lots of color photographs, on our Amazon site for $75.
Click the link to our storefront to see these, as well as all the other beautiful, quirky, and niche books we list for sale there!

All of our donations come from the community, and all proceeds are used to benefit the Fairfax County Public Library System, with a particular emphasis on the Reston Regional Library's needs.

Thanks To Our Sponsors

One of the factors in the success of our recent used book sale is that we have fabulous community sponsorship. Each of the following businesses contributed food or materials to the Friends of the Reston Regional Library during the sale. The food was for the volunteers and as in past years, there was more food than there were volunteers!

Thanks also to Donations Chair, Helen T., for making this happen!

Here are the businesses. We encourage you to patronize them and thank them for helping support literacy!
