Library joins the county's 250th anniversary celebration







Fauquier County Public Library is joining in the county's 250th anniversary celebration.

Cake-making items being collected
Throughout April all Fauquier County Public Library branches are collecting cake mixes, cans of prepared frosting, and birthday cake candles. In May, birthday cake kits will be assembled at Fauquier libraries as part of the county’s 250th anniversary celebration. The birthday cake kits will be donated to the Fauquier Food Distribution Coalition to be distributed to those in need. So, drop off birthday cake supplies to your favorite library branch (Warrenton, Bealeton or John Marshall), then join us in May (see below) to help us assemble the kits — we’ll party while we work!
