Celebrate the smartest card

September is Library Card Sign-up Month.
If you have children, don't forget this important school supply. You’ll want to make sure that your child is among the two-thirds of Americans that carry the smartest card of all – a library card.

Studies show that children who use the library and who read or read to at home perform better in school. They are also more likely to continue to use the library as a source for a satisfying lifetime of learning.

There is no age requirement for getting a Fauquier County Public Library card, and many parents enjoy giving their children the thrill and responsibility of owning their own "charge card," one that lets them borrow books, movies, music, and more.

Teens get carded
Teens can "get carded" at the library throughout September in celebration of Library Card Sign-up Month.

Fauquier employees, others eligible
People who work in Fauquier County but live outside the county are eligible for a Fauquier library card without a fee and are entitled to all the borrowing privileges that residents have.

Help us celebrate Library Card Sign-up Month. Let us take your picture when you come to the library, then check to see yourself and others who are helping us celebrate.
Library cards are free and the application only takes a few minutes to complete. Check library eligibility requirements, or, apply now.
