Summer Reading Program Starts Now

Summer has finally arrived. The 2014 Summer Reading Program has arrived as well at the Fauquier County Public Library. 

Registration is now open for children and teens at all library locations and online. Registration only takes a few minutes and opens the door to eight weeks of reading, special programs and, yes, prizes. Weekly special events begin Saturday, June 14 and run through August 9. 


Children

Children from preschool through 5th grade will Fizz Boom Read their way through summer. Each week, log the books you have read and earn one spin of the prize wheel. Once you register, you can start logging books; spins on the prize wheel begin Saturday, June 14. Programs will be held for children of all ages - from babies to tweens - so be sure to pick up a schedule of events at any library location or access it here - and mark you calendars! 


Teens 

If you are a rising 6th grader or older, come to the library to Spark a Reaction!  During this fun-filled program, teens can log books, write book reviews and attend special programs and events. When you submit book reviews, you are entered into a weekly prize drawing for cool prizes like car passes to Great Meadow's Fourth of July Celebration, Fauquier County Fair tickets, gift cards to local restaurants and businesses and other fun prizes. 

New for teens in 2014, each time you attend one of the special Summer Reading Program events, teens are also entered into a Grand Prize Drawing for a Google Nexus Tablet - Good luck!  Register here for the Teen Summer Reading Program. 


Adults 

The fun isn't just for kids! By popular demand, the adult summer reading program is back. 

This year, adults can join in Literary Elements and be part of the reading fun. Pick up your game card starting June 14th. Special prize drawings will be held throughout the summer and a grand prize will also be drawn August 9 - one lucky patron will win a Kindle Fire!  

All Summer Reading Program events and activities are free thanks to the generous support of The Friends of the Fauquier Library and local businesses.

So join us - and help us reach our 2014 Summer Reading Program goal of 30,000 books read. Don't miss it - there is fun planned for patrons of all ages. 

See you at the library!
