The Fayette County Public Library system is pleased to announce its participation in West Virginia Family Reading Week: Nov. 15-21.

During the week, libraries throughout the state encourage parents and caregivers to read with their children. Reading aloud stimulates speech and language development for young children. Older children can see the benefits with improved academic success.

Reading together also promotes family bonding. In the WV Family Read Week Guidebook, there are many activities for parents to spark interest and excitement for reading. The WV Family Read Week Guidebook is available on our webpage at

Along with these activities, families can visit any Fayette County Public Library branch to learn about the places a library card can take you and to participate in activities with the library programs.

It is also fine free week. So find all your overdue items and return them to the library in good condition and those fines on your overdue items turned in will be waived. So go searching.
