The Friends of the Fauquier Library provide generous support for library programs and events for children, teens and adults, as well as special library purchases. In FY 2014, they contributed $26,000 to the library. Funds are raised largely through from the Book Cellar, a used book shop located in the basement of the John Barton Payne bldg. in Old Town Warrenton.
Libraries around the country celebrate their local Friends organizations October 20-26 during National Friends of Libraries Week.
