Children and teens break reading record

The final count is in. This summer Fauquier children and teens smashed the record for the number of books read during the Fauquier County Public Library’s summer reading programs by more than 6,000 books.

The library’s goal was for children and teens participating in the summer reading programs to collectively read 27,000 books between June 1 and August 15. The 1,892 participants exceeded the goal by reading 33,482 books. Last year summer reading program participants read 25,725 books during the same period and in 2007 they read 16,699.

Congratulations Fauquier readers!
