From 20 December - 4 January, we will NOT be accepting donations at Reston Regional Library. Our sorters (volunteers) will be taking a holiday break.  Without the sorters sorting DAILY, the donations very quickly become unmanageable and create havoc for the staff and patrons trying to get into and out of the library. On January 5, we'll be happy to receive donations again and start issuing receipts for you! If you absolutely can't wait, please donate the books to another Friends group at another local library.

In other news, we have an opportunity for you to support FRRL while doing your holiday shopping. Barnes & Noble has agreed to donate a percentage of identified sales to the Friends Organization through January 18, 2009. All you have to do is mention the Friends number when you make a purchase at any Barnes & Noble store. You need to mention the number prior to your purchase. This is not limited to members of the Friends group - anyone can help us out! There is no additional cost to you. The number to mention is
Thank you for supporting local literacy programs through this additional fund raising opportunity.

Reigning Cats and Dogs by Katherine MacDonogh is a great gift book for animal lovers. The author takes a look at the place of royal pets in their households and even in their decision making processes. It's available for $25 at our Amazon1 site.

The Coward's Almanac is a funny book, also suitable for a gift. The book appears to be new, possibly unread. The dust jacket is corner clipped and shows some signs of aging, but is not tattered or torn. This book is available for $18 at our Amazon1 site.
