A few of the names on my list are avid readers and receiving a book is a sure way to spread holiday cheer to them. Even knowing that, I am sometimes not sure what book to choose. Perhaps they read a different genre than I do or I'm not sure, despite the glowing description on the jacket, how good the book really is. My solution? I turn to the holiday gift book suggestions compiled by library staff. These lists provide a wide range of ideas for children, teens and adults. Lists are available at all library locations.
If you missed Cyber Monday but still plan to do some of your shopping online, consider using Amazon.com. Amazon donates a portion of your total purchase to the Fauquier County Public Library each time you shop. Just log in then continue to Amazon and place your order for books, movies, electronics or other gifts. There are no additional steps or costs to you. You can even bookmark the page to make return shopping trips to Amazon easy and convenient.
If an eReader is in your stocking, don't forget that the library's collection includes a wide selection of eBooks, audio books and digital magazines - all available free with your library card! We also have handouts available at the reference desk to help navigate your new device.
Happy holidays and happy reading!
