Almost all Fairfax County residents live within five miles of a library, so you’d think their essential services would be fully accessible to everyone. But books and other materials can’t keep up with demand. Library hours are inconsistent from branch to branch. And most libraries are closed all day on Sundays. The “It’s About Time” campaign was created to give residents more time to access the important services our libraries provide to them.
The Coalition to Expand Library Access was created by an Ad Hoc Committee of the Fairfax County Public Library Board of Trustees. The committee comprises Trustees, leaders of the Fairfax Library Foundation, and leaders of the Reston, Oakton and Sherwood library Friends groups.
The Coalition welcomes all organizations and individuals who support making library access equal for all Fairfax County residents. Some of those who have endorsed this goal thus far are shown below. We hope you will add your name to the list!
