Give the Gift of Reading!

If your holiday generosity extends to organizations within the community, please consider adding the Fauquier County Public Library to your list.

Add to the Library’s Collection
Throughout December, holiday trees at all library locations will be decorated with ornaments bearing titles of books the library would like to add to its collection. Donation details are on each ornament. Selections for our children’s, teen and adult collections are included.

Everybody Wins with Wowbrary
If you prefer to make your holiday purchases on Amazon rather than braving the crowds and lines at the store, a portion of your purchase price can benefit Fauquier County Public
Library—at no additional cost to you.  Simply start your shopping at http://wowbrary.org/fauquier.

It’s that easy!
