Central Rappahannock Regional Library
England Run Library, our newest branch in Stafford County, is now open!
See pictures of the library and of the dedication ceremony which took place on Sunday, October 3.
Everyone knows times are tough. Budget cuts and belt-tightening are commonplace.
The library has felt the pinch too, but we know we'll carry on and continue to offer the best possible service to our patrons.
Humor often helps us through the hard times, so we'd like to share this video, inspired by the 1978 disco hit "I Will Survive," made by and featuring CRRL staff.
You can also check out this longer version, which begins with a send-up of a typically hectic day in the life of a professional librarian.
Our England Run Library was recently featured in this article by the Free Lance-Star. The book shelves are in, the books have been delivered, and now it's just up to a team of staff and volunteers to stock our newest library in time for opening day on Monday, October 4.
After 17 years of deliveries, through rain, sleet, and snow, down country lanes to the remote regions of the CRRL service area, the CRRL's last bookmobile retires today, June 30, 2010.
The Stafford County Board of Supervisors, at their December 15, 2009, meeting awarded the CRRL a proclamation commending the library's recognition as a national Star Library.
This July the Central Rappahannock Regional Library turns 40.

Our birthday wish is to provide you with the best library services around!
The will of Captain C Wistar Wallace, who died May 20, 1907, left $15,000 to the City of Fredericksburg for the purpose of establishing a public library (See November 1985 Times Magazine.) The will stipulated how the money was to be used and provided for certain conditions to be met.
"FIRST IN THE STATE and fourth in the nation: Those are high honors, and now our own Central Rappahannock Regional Library deserves a metaphoric bouquet for earning them."
