About Manassas Reads

The Prince William County Public Library System, the City of Manassas and Manassas City Public Schools joined together to host the first community-wide book festival in October 2014, at the Harris Pavilion. The event now takes place in the spring annually and continues to offer many activities and giveaways, including LOTS of free books for all ages, prizes, special community guest readers, the chance to meet published and local authors, student presentations, live music and so much more!

Donate Books to Manassas Reads

Manassas community: Our goal is to collect as many gently used or new books for ages pre-K through young adult. In an effort to continue to promote reading in the community, the hope is that all who attend can leave with 10 free books. Donations can be dropped off at Central Office (8700 Centreville Road, Ste. 400). Book donations are also being accepted at all MCPS schools. Addresses for each school may be found on the School Profiles page. Thank you!
