Fauquier County Public Library -- Naming of Libraries Policy

Library Home Page > Mission & Policies > Naming of Libraries

Naming of Libraries

All new libraries shall be named for the geographical area in which they are located.

The Library Board will consider naming an area of the library, such as a meeting room, for a corporation or an individual, living or deceased, who has made a significant contribution to the Fauquier County Public Library system or to an individual library. The Board may also approve the placement of a commemorative plaque in a library to honor significant contributions of Fauquier County citizens.

The principal exterior sign for all new buildings must include "Fauquier County Public Library," the branch name, and the street number clearly visible from the street. This policy should also be applied where possible when existing buildings are renovated.
