  • One Really

    Fairfax County Public Libraries are still stuck in the 20th century. Definitely need improvement in function, services, etc to be relative in the 21st. Some employees (or volunteer) up to speed with technology would help.

    It was cool when my daughter was 2-4. We would go to a book reading or a Muppet show.

    With High and Middle school kids now it doesn’t really fit our needs.

    Love the pic, Karen! Not the weather, however.

    FCPS release — and unbridled joy — over improved SAT scores is merely a reflection that FCPS is more interested in producing better college students than they are in producing better citizens, or even adults.
