Library adds children-teen offerings with civic donation

The Bealeton-Remington Ruritan Club , in efforts to fulfill community needs, has made a donation to the Fauquier Public Library to upgrade furnishings at the Bealeton branch library and add new resources for school age children.

The Ruritan’s donation will fund numerous items on the library’s “wish list,” including new tables and activity boards for young children, STEAM kits for school age students, incentives to encourage teens to sign up for library cards and the addition of numerous books to the library’s collection.

“We are thankful for the Ruritan’s long-standing support of the library and its unflagging dedication to the Southern Fauquier Community,” noted Lawrie Parker, Chairman, Fauquier Library Board of Trustees.

Library expands story times to go with donation

The Fauquier Public Library has added 40 new Story Times to Go kits to its book collection for young children with a $2,000 donation from Learning Starts Early, a local organization committed to preparing every child in Fauquier County for kindergarten and beyond.

“Learning Starts Early is happy to contribute to the library’s collection of books for young children. It helps ensure our mission that every child in the county has access to all of the opportunities necessary to be ready for kindergarten and to succeed in school and in the workforce,” said LSE co-chair Dr. Bob Dart.

The kits, available at all library locations, aim to bring the story time experience into a preschooler’s environment. Along with picture books, each kit has an activity sheet that encourages finger plays, rhymes, etc.
