Mail box full of books

If you have a health concern and are not able to come into the library to pick up your materials, there is a solution to your problem. Contact the Assistive Services department to let us know about your temporary or chronic health issue so we can set up a Books-by-Mail account for you. Once you have a Books-by-Mail account any materials—including books, videos, magazines, and CDs—that you request are sent to the Assistive Services department where they will be mailed to your home.

World Book Night, April 23, 2014 logo

Start the New Year by joining the CRRL in giving a wonderful book—or two or twenty—to those who may not be familiar with the joys of reading.  Sign up by January 5, 2014, to receive multiple copies of amazing books.  The only catch: they cannot be resold. Neither are they to keep for yourself or your bibliophile friends.  They are to be given away with joyful hearts, as an invitation to the world of reading.  There’s no charge to be a book giver, but you do need to apply.

CRRL Genealogy Program

The first two “Introductory Genealogy & Beyond” classes, co-sponsored by the Fredericksburg Regional Genealogical Society and the Central Rappahannock Regional Library, have been spectacularly successful.  So successful, in fact, that the original venue will not do anymore, and all future classes will be held in the Free Lance-Star's Community Room, located at 616 Amelia Street.

The next class will be on Saturday, April 13, beginning at 9 AM. Professional genealogist Phyllis Legare, CG, will be speaking first on “Timelines in Genealogy,” and then on “Military Research.” Ms. Legare has been researching for her family for many years and for clients as well. Phyllis’ main joy in genealogy is finding the family stories. She loves to share her knowledge about genealogy research and also loves to learn—a never-ending process for researchers.
