50TH BIRTHDAY BOOK BASHES
To help celebrate RIF of NOVA's 50th birthday -- 1972 to 2021 -- we are hosting a number of "Book Bash" events to give away books donated by members of our community of supporters. The first "Book Bash" was held on April 23, in conjunction with Culmore Community Day at Fairfax County's Woodrow Wilson Library. Eight hundred books, plus lollipops and bookmarks, went into the hands of children -- who were delighted to start their at-home libraries with such great opportunities to read. The books ranged from board books for the little ones to YA books for teens, and everything in between for kids interested in everything from dragons to magic to character stories. And fun? Had by all. Just take a look!
