Library Opens Zoom Room — “There is a new option for Arlington residents and visitors who need an internet connection and privacy for virtual meetings. Arlington Public Library will open The Teleconnect Space at Columbia Pike Library, in partnership with the Arlington County Department of Community Planning, Housing, and Development (CPHD) and the Department of Technology Services (DTS).” [Arlington County]

Food Scrap Program ‘Underutilized’ — “Grabowsky, who does his own composting at his South Arlington home, acknowledged that the program ‘is underutilized,’ perhaps 40-45 percent of homes, according to audits. The county ‘would like to see it reach the same’ participation rate as general recycling, 85-90 percent. When he spotted a neighbor putting her small caddy on the curb empty, as if to get rid of it, Grabowsky tactfully placed a composting brochure on her door. ‘We just have to do a consistently better job of educating the public.'” [Falls Church News-Press]

Marymount Sees Application Surge — “Leading up to the Fall 2022 semester, a total of 3,551 applications were submitted from prospective students – a 44 percent jump from the 2,462 applications that the University received prior to the 2021-2022 academic year. This data represents both the largest total number of applications that Marymount has received as well as the highest year-to-year growth percentage in applications received over the last 16 years of recorded admissions data available.” [Press Release]

Church Near Ballston Turns 150 — “First Presbyterian Church of Arlington kicked off its sesquicentennial celebration with a picnic and concert on the church grounds on Aug. 28, and has additional events in the pipeline to celebrate 150 years of service to parishioners and the community.” [Sun Gazette]

Payphone Down in Pentagon City — From @CartChaos22202: “The old ⁦@Verizon⁩ pay phone outside of ⁦@FashionCtrPC⁩ + the ⁦@RitzCarlton⁩ Pentagon City has been toppled.” [Twitter]

HS Football Roundup — “The Yorktown Patriots bounced back with a lopsided victory in high-school football action the night of Sept. 1, while the Washington-Liberty Generals and Wakefield Warriors lost the same evening. All three games were non-district contests.” [Sun Gazette]
