Mark Your Calendar: November Programs for Children and Teens

November is a month with many events and observances. It kicks off with All Saint's Day (November 1) and includes the birthday of the United States Marine Corps (November 10), Veterans Day (November 11) and, of course, Thanksgiving (celebrated on the fourth Thursday). "Black Friday" and "Cyber Monday" are also in November.

Many month-long observations are also held in November. Here is a sampling: 

  • Native American Heritage Month
  • National Novel Writing Month
  • National Blog Writing Month 
  • No Shave November 
  • Sweet Potato Awareness Month (no, I did not make that up!)
Clearly, November is a very busy time! Not to be outdone, we have a November calendar chocked full of activities too. Here are the highlights for children and teens: 

Geography Awareness Week Trivia Challenge 

Elementary school students are invited to test their geography knowledge during this week-long trivia challenge. It's easy to join in: grab a list of clues at any library location, find the answers around the library and win a cool prize! 
All Fauquier County Public Library locations - November 10 - 15 

International Games Day 

This annual event, now in its 7th year, is a great opportunity for family fun at your local library! Children and their families are invited to stop by and play their favorite game(s). Choose from classic games and new favorites. 

Bealeton and John Marshall libraries: Saturday, November 15, 1 - 4 p.m.
Warrenton Library: Monday, November 25, 4:30 p.m. 

Holiday Mail for Heroes

The Teen Advisory Group (TAG) invites you to make greeting cards to be sent to servicemen and servicewomen at military hospitals and installations; service hour opportunity.

Bealeton Library: Tuesday, November 4, 4 p.m.
Warrenton Library: Tuesday, November 4 from 1-4 (drop in) & Monday, November 24, 4:30 p.m.
Marshall Library: Tuesday, November 18, 5 p.m.

This is a great way to learn more about TAG and do something nice for the community! TAG membership is a cool way to get involved at the library, make new friends, plan events and have fun; most schools accept TAG activities as service hours. Membership forms are available at your local library or ask your librarian about getting involved; (540) 422-8500.

For a complete listing of programs for children and teens, pick up a calendar at any library location, or view the calendar online

See you at the library!
