Get Carded @ the Library


Teens can "get carded" at the library throughout September in celebration of Library Card Sign-up Month. Any teen who shows their library card at a Fauquier library reference desk in September will get an (edible) prize!

A library card gives you access to books, magazines, music, films, and other familiar materials during regular library hours. But what do you do at midnight when homework is due the next morning? Take your library card in hand and hop online to our library web site. The databases connect you to full-text encyclopedia articles, newspaper archives, downloadable audio books, and even free practice tests. Explore Oxford Reference Online Premium for bilingual dictionaries, timelines, maps and illustrations, and excellent links to web sites. Click on Peterson’s Testing & Education Reference Center to take practice SAT, ACT, AP, GED, and career exams. Ask at a reference desk for help getting started.
