Reading by Design: A Summer Reading Program for All Ages

Posted by Aaron on

First offered in the 1970s, the annual Fauquier County Public Library’s summer reading program has grown to include over 1,600 registrants and more than 150 programs. The 2017 program, Reading by Design, promises activities for children, teens and adults, all designed to keep everyone reading during the summer months.

Registration opens Thursday, June 1; special events begin Saturday, June 10.

When registering, you will have the option to register as an individual (child or teen), as a Group, or as a Family. Please follow these directions to register as a Group or Family.

Programs for children kickoff with Drew Blue Shoes, a hilarious and awesome magic show for the whole family (all library locations). Programs for teens begin with Music by Maddi Mae (Warrenton central library).

Programs for adults will include monthly Sunday with the Library presentations, as well as Older Wiser Learners (OWLs), DIY crafting and monthly book clubs.

It pays to include the library as part of your summer plans. Studies have shown that reading during the summer hiatus helps students retain academic skills. Children and young adults score better on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation if they’ve included reading as part of their daily summer activity.  So join the fun at your local library this summer!

A comprehensive summer calendar of events is available at your local library – pick one up and start planning how you and your family will Read by Design. Complete information about the summer reading program is available online.

The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Fauquier Library and local businesses.
