Fauquier County Public Library

Summer Reading Program

Welcome to the 2019 Summer Reading Program – It’s Showtime at Your Library! 

This year’s program will feature fun and exciting activities and programs – for readers of all ages – and will include animals, STEM, crafts, theater and magic. Read on to find out how you – and your entire family – can be part of It’s Showtime at Your Library! 

Here’s how it works:

The first step for children, teens and adults is to register online or at your local library branch. Then pick up a game card at the library. There are eight rows on each game card – one for every week of the program. Read, attend programs or complete other fun tasks each week for chances to win cool prizes all summer long. Programs and special events will be offered weekly at all library locations.  For a complete list of It’s Showtime at Your Library programs and events, check out the 2019 Summer @ the Library calendar.

Cross off at least five spaces in the week’s row on your game card, then come to the library to get your game card stamped and spin the prize wheel.

Complete 5 squares each week all 8 weeks of the program to receive a special prize. Stop by August 1 – 16 to pick up your prize (while supplies last).
