FCPL Summer Reading ends 8/13

FCPL’s 2021 Summer Reading Adventure is underway. You have about three more weeks to get entered and complete your reading log and the other online challenges. Once you do, you will be entered to win some great prizes, including gift certificates and Nats tickets!

Feeling creative? FCPL is also hosting a Teen Cover Art Contest and a Teen Film Festival. Deadline for submissions for these two contests is September 1. Go forth and create! (Or, sit quietly and read!)

New TAB Schedule for 2021-2022

The Fairfax County Public Library has new operating hours:

Mon – Wed, 10am to 9pm

Thu – Sun 10am to 6pm

This means our regular Thursday evening timeslot is no longer an option. So, Wednesday it is! We will keep the 7-8:30 timeframe. We will meet in person at least once a month, the 2nd Wednesday of the month – beginning with August 11th. At this first meeting we will have snacks, make a new bulletin board display for the Teen area, and plan for the year ahead. If you like, you can also come prepared to share your favorite Woden/Odin-connected book/series in honor of our new meeting day.
