"A great library needs more than books and computers — it needs friends!"
This is the motto of the Friends of the Sherwood Regional Library.

Hello, Friends of Sherwood Library,
 I wanted to let you know about the events for our 40th anniversary - the celebration is big enough to span two weekends!

On September 10, the men of the Heritage Harmony Singers will perform in our meeting room.  They have been rehearsing at our library for many years and, as you know, they are fabulous performers.  That show will be at 11 am.     Later that day we will host Rocknoceros.  If you have
young children, you won't want to miss the group when they appear at 2:30 pm.  Registration required for both events.

September 17, the next Saturday, is another big day for us.  Gary Lloyd will bring great stories and lots of fun at 11 am.  Gary has appeared at many locations throughout Northern Virginia.  Registration required.
Later that day, we will be joined by the Mount Vernon Swing Band.  Because they will be performing in the Showmobile in front of the building, you will enjoy their music for much of the afternoon.

To celebrate this anniversary, the Friends of Sherwood Library will be reducing the price of the books in the second floor book sale area.  Between 10 and 2 pm, come by, shop a little, and ask the Book sale volunteers how you can help.  The money that is raised by the book sale is used to provide programs and refreshments for neighbors of all ages, magazine subscriptions to supplement our collection, and furniture as needed,  Best of all, the Friends provide the funds for our volunteer recognition events... and you can join the ranks of our volunteers!

While you're buying personal books, perhaps you'll want to think about birthday presents for Sherwood.  You may wish to browse our  WishList, http://www.fairfaxlibraryfoundation.org/donorinfo/amazon.htm. 

We're looking forward to seeing you.

Denise Morgan,
Branch Manager
