The power of donations evident

The ripple effect a donation can have was recently demonstrated when the circulation of children's audio books jumped 78 percent in the first quarter of the Fauquier County Public Library’s 2012 fiscal year.

Thanks to an anonymous donation of $3,000, this year the library bolstered its children’s collection of books on CD kits for early readers. Now more than 64 kits of popular and classic tales, such as Corduroy, Duck on a Bike, and How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food are available to check out at all library branches.

Books on CD have proven to be an excellent way to encourage reading skills of new and reluctant readers because children can listen to a CD at the same time they are reading the story. See all 64 kit titles.
While there are many ways to donate to the library, all county libraries have holiday trees festively decorated with titles for children, teens and adults that the library would like to add to its collection. See more about the donation trees.
