Legal Forms on Demand

“Do you have the divorce forms?” That question’s not as easy to answer as you might think -- but CRRL can probably help!

“How do I get an annulment in Virginia?” “Is there a form I can use to change my name?” “Can I file for bankruptcy without a lawyer?” “Is there a list of local domestic violence shelters?”

Grab-and-go forms and flyers dealing with all these legal matters, and many, many others, are now available at the CRRL Law Library.

Summer Reading Clubs Coming June 1

The library's summer reading clubs mean great books, programs, and prizes for readers of all ages. Sign up for the clubs online or at our library branches starting June 1st! 

Find the program that is right for you:

Kids ages 0 - 12 years: "Dream Big: Read"

Teens ages 13-17 years: "Own the Night"

Adults 18 years and up: "Midsummer Madness"

Read what you want, when you want! No meetings to attend - just visit the library any time. Check out the free programs for the summer for all ages.

While you are having fun reading all summer long, share reviews online for a weekly chance to win a free book from a Friends of the Library book sale. 

Why Join? Children who are read to from an early age have a larger vocabulary and better language skills when they start school. A recent study by The Dominican University* has shown that children who joined public library summer reading clubs did better on fall standardized tests than their classmates who didn’t!  *"Public Library Summer Reading Programs Close the Reading Gap"

Life in the Ocean: The Story of Oceanographer Sylvia Earle by Claire A. Nivola

From the time she was quite young, Sylvia Earle loved the outdoors. She spent her early childhood on a farm in New Jersey exploring the animals and plants around her. Her family moved to Florida when Sylvia was twelve, to a home with a backyard on the Gulf of Mexico. Once Sylvia began exploring the waters of the Gulf, she found her life’s calling. Throughout her career as an oceanographer, Sylvia has been driven to push the boundaries of the possible in order to find out more about the underwater world she loves so much.
