Neighbors and Friends

Congratulations to the 2009 Friends Choice Award Winners
from Friends of Reston Regional Library:

Nevin Albert
Norbert Pink
Sheila Baugh

The Friends Choice Awards were established so Friends of the Library groups could recognize those people who are integral in the success of the Friends groups, but who don't necessarily volunteer the number of 'hours' required to meet the thresholds for other County volunteer awards. Each of these people provide an essential part of the puzzle that keeps our Friends group healthy and functioning -- especially during the craziness of our Semi Annual Book Sales. We salute them!

-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-

We wish we could give you a "full up" booksale all the time, but it takes several months for us to accumulate the high quality volumes, and it takes our volunteers a bit of time to recover and gear up again. So in the meantime, we invite you to satisfy your book hunger in a couple of ways:

  • Ongoing sale -- we have a few bookshelves in the front lobby of the library stocked with books currently for sale. All topics covered!
  • Specialty items and odd lots -- occasionally we put up signs for specialty items such as comic books, big sets, etc. Watch for those here on the blog and at the library.
And...we want to support our neighbors and Friends:
