Friends of the Arlington Public Library (FOAL) and Arlington Public Library recently presented a $5,498 check to the Potomac Conservancy, representing the number of library readers who successfully completed the 2022 Summer Reading program.

“It has been a wonderful experience partnering with Arlington Public Library,” said Hedrick Belin, president of Potomac Conservancy. “The FOAL donation will go towards our local conservation efforts, supporting our goal to restore clean water to our community. Together, we’ll close the chapter on pollution and write new prose on a healthy, thriving Potomac River.”

Board member Rob Hizon of the Friends of the Arlington Public Library, Arlington library director Diane Kresh and library division chief Peter Petruski presented the 2022 Summer Reading donation check to Olivia Guerra, director of institutional giving at the Potomac Conservancy.

“Nearly 8,000 readers participated in our community reading program and thousands more attended events – all free,” Kresh said.
