Summer Reading Program Registration Now Open!
Registration for the annual summer reading program is now open!
For more than 25 years, Fauquier County Public Library has joined libraries around the country in offering a free reading program to combat “summer slide,” the tendency for students to lose some of the achievement gains they made during the previous school year. Although the program originally focused on keeping children and teens reading through the summer months, it has grown into a full slate of great programs and activities for readers of all ages, including adults.
The theme for 2018 is “Reading Takes You Everywhere” and we couldn’t agree more! Join us as we explore far-off lands and embark on adventures, right here, within the walls of your local library.
To learn more about the exciting events and programs planned, check out the Summer @ the Library, 2018 calendar with details about all the programs offered.
Registration unlocks the fun! As they read, children and teens log the number of minutes read. Each week, children earn a spin of the prize wheel and teens earn a chance to win fun weekly prizes and a are entered into the grand prize drawing at the end of the summer. Attendance at library events also earn teens more chances to win.
Adults “claim” completed Library Bingo cards to be entered into prize drawings throughout the summer and a grand prize drawing at the end of the program.
Registration is easy.
Start by creating an account for yourself or your family. Once your account is created, add additional family members/readers as participants. Easy-to-follow directions guide you through the registration process and library staff are available to answer questions. Once your registration is complete, everyone in the family can begin to log the minutes read, book titles (optional), claim Library Bingo Cards or submit book reviews.
Join us, and see where reading takes you!
