Heads Up for July


This coming Thursday, July 1, begins the new operating hours for Reston Regional Library. The hours will be:

Monday 1 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Tuesday 10 a.m. - 9 p.m.

Wednesday 1 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Thursday 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Friday 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Saturday hours remain 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Sunday hours remain 1 p.m. - 5 p.m.

All of the regional libraries will be on this schedule. The community libraries will have the opposite hours Monday - Thursday, i.e. if it's a late day for the Regionals, it will be an early day for the community libraries.  However, community libraries will be CLOSED on Sundays. (The closest community libraries are Patrick Henry in Vienna and Herndon).

What does this mean for the Friends?

Fewer hours to sort donations . . . which means more of a back-up in sorting than we already suffer, especially in the summer time.

Therefore, we are contemplating changing the hours we'll receive donations.  At the very least, we sure could use some more dedicated volunteers to train as sorters and commit to a regular time to do the work. The advantage of sorting is that there is a definite camaraderie between sorters, as well as the possibility that YOU will be the one to discover the hidden treasure donated in a big pile of books.
