Make a Wish Come True

Thousands of readers are on the library’s waiting lists to check out popular books and bestsellers. The Fairfax County Public Library is not always able to buy enough copies to satisfy demand. You can help shorten the waiting lists and get books into the hands of avid readers!

Library specialists have created a list of high-demand books that you can purchase through a special Amazon.com program. By donating one of these books to the Fairfax County Public Library Foundation, you can be sure that you’re meeting an immediate and specific need.

(Note: although Amazon.com will suggest additional books for your consideration, please do not purchase books for the library that are not specifically requested on the library’s Wish List.)

When you buy books on the library’s Amazon.com Wish List, they will be mailed directly to the library’s book processing center. The library will place a sticker on each book letting future readers know it was a gift to the library. In addition, you will be notified by the Fairfax County Public Library Foundation that your generous donation was received. Your donation will be tax deductible to the fullest extend of the law.

For more information on donating books through the Amazon.com Wish List program, please contact the library foundation at 703-324-8300, or by e-mail.
