Holiday Closing: All branches will be closed starting at 5:00 pm Wednesday, Nov. 26 and continuing Thursday, Nov. 27 and Friday, Nov. 28 for the Thanksgiving holiday. Never fear! You can still access our catalog, eBooks, and research tools.
Today's libraries are not just for books, computers and magazines – the Salem Church library now has its own geocache! In geocaching, participants obtain the location of a geocache from a geocaching Web site www.geocaching.com, use a GPS to arrive in the area of the cache, and then follow clues or simply hunt for the cache. There are over 1000 caches waiting to be found within a 25 mile radius of the Fredericksburg area!
The next time you’re in the library, take a look at some of the newest books to grace library shelves. Readers of all ages will be entranced with Jerry Pinkney’s wordless edition of Aesop’s “The Lion and the Mouse.” The story of kindness rewarded has a simple plot filled with action, just right for a wordless treatment.
