5  General / Library Announcements / Library Volunteer(s) Needed for Saturdays on: January 09, 2018, 01:10:48 PM
The Library is seeking a Saturday volunteer to help with shelving.  Saturdays are always hopping at the Library and we have just one staff person on duty, so we could really use some help! 

We welcome anyone who can do every Saturday, or every other Saturday.  The Library is open 9-1.  Generally our volunteers come for 1 - 2 hours per shift. 

This is a great way to support your library, give back to the community, and even have something to put on your resume!  Students over age 15 are welcome too. If you are interested, please message here or call the Library at 849-2420 and speak to Debbie or

15  General / Library Announcements / Eclipse Viewing on: August 17, 2017, 03:27:59 PM
Despite what you may have heard on the news, the Fairfax Community Library does not have solar eclipse viewing glasses to give away. We will have an Eclipse Viewing Party here at the Library on Monday 8/21 from 1-3 p.m., and we have some eclipse viewing glasses for participants to use then. Please join us!

NASA has an entire website devoted to this event! Look in the Safety section under Eclipse 101 for a list of reputable vendors. 
Given the late date, we suggest people make solar viewing projectors, pinhole projections, or sun funnels to view the eclipse. To see NASA's great website about eclipses and safe viewing, go to


Also, the NASA site will be streaming the eclipse so you can view it safely on your computer. We will have thestream up on our large screen here!
