Thousands of kids and hundreds of teens have already signed up for this year’s summer reading clubs at the Central Rappahannock Regional Library.  Now that schools are letting out, librarians are bracing for even more eager readers swarming into our branches. 


Summer means the youth services librarians get to turn their attention form homework help to one of their very favorite jobs:  matching readers with books.  Getting kids started on a great series is a special thrill as kids fall head over heels into characters and stories that continue in book after book.
