Come in out of the Cold @ Your Library

January traditionally brings chilly temperatures, slush and snow. Perfect conditions for sitting next to a roaring fire with a good book, right?

Your friends at the Fauquier County Public Library invite you to Come in out of the Cold - with a visit to your local library!

Teens are encouraged to check out the newly configured young adult area at the Warrenton central library - redesigned to make it easier to browse for the perfect book or hang out and do homework. Teens can also come in out of the cold and shape up at our teen fitness program (held at all three library locations). Or check out a good book to enjoy. You can get recommendations at any reference desk or in the last Reading Riot post, featuring some great winter reads for teens.

Younger children will enjoy our Winter Fun scavenger hunt, while adults can choose from book groups, chess, Scrabble or a leisurely stroll through the stacks.
