Fauquier County Public Library

Summer Reading Program

Star Man Reading BookThe 2018 Fauquier County Public Library’s Summer Reading Program officially kicks off June 1.  The theme is “Reading Takes You Everywhere.”

We couldn’t agree more, so join us as we explore far-off lands and embark on adventures right here, within the walls of your local library. We have lots of activities and programs planned for readers of all ages – from young children through adults.

Here’s how it works:

The first step for children, teens and adults is to register online or at your local library branch. If more than one member of your family will be participating, complete a family registration for easy tracking of all family members within one account. Easy to follow prompts and directions will guide you through the registration process. Registration opens June 1.

Children (through grade 5)
Track the minutes read each week to earn a spin of the prize wheel. Tracking book titles is a fun option, but is not required to participate. Programs and special events will be offered weekly at all library locations.  Register/Log Time Read.

Teens (grade 6 and up)
Log the amount of time spent reading and attendance at library events to be entered into drawings for weekly prize giveaways and a grand prize at the end of the program. Register/Log Time Read.

Adults (16 or older)
Play Library Bingo! Complete four tasks on the card and then “claim” your Bingo card online or return it to your local library. Either way you will be be entered into prize drawings, including a grand prize drawing!  There is no limit to the number of bingo cards you can enter, or the amount of fun you can have at your library this summer.  Register/Claim Library Bingo card.

Don’t forget to tell us where reading has taken you!  Look for the world map at your local library and mark where you have traveled this summer—literally, or via the pages of a good book.
