  • Help us Equip the Library with LiveStreaming

    AFDC is raising money to equip the library with livestreaming technology, in order to make it possible for the AFDC community living beyond the Beltway to attend events from their home. Help us maintain the links with French language and French culture for those outside the immediate DMV area. Email for more information.
