Fairfax Library Advocates Meet with Delegate Marcus Simon

A change in the language of the Code of Virginia that pertains to libraries would make a big difference to the future of Fairfax County Public Library.  This morning we discussed designating libraries as essential services with Delegate Marcus Simon.   Marcia McDevitt, Kathy Kaplan, Dennis Hays, and John Ball met with Delegate Simon, and we also covered removing the population cap on calculating state aid to our library.

We touched on how libraries can improve the successful launching of small businesses:
