Book Clubs are a great way to meet other community members who enjoy reading and discussing books, share your ideas about what you read and even explore new genres. The Fauquier County Public Library has numerous book clubs – each with its own personality! From the classics to recent best-sellers, we have a book club that reads that. The Friends of the Fauquier Library provide refreshments.
- Bealeton Book Club
- Warrenton Great Books
