I am pleased to announce that we are partnering with Spotsylvania County, the Belmont Ruritan Club, and the Belmont Club of Women to increase access to library services for residents in rural Spotsylvania. Beginning Monday, April 10, CRRL will offer computers, printing, and other library services at Belmont Community Center, 7124 Belmont Road, Mineral, VA. A library card is not required to take advantage of this service, but those interested can apply for one on-site. You can even make arrangements to pick up your next holds at this location.
We'll be there each Monday from 4-7 p.m., and our friendly staff will offer the following services:
-Computers with Internet access and printing
-Books, movies, and audiobooks for all ages
-Homework help and reading recommendations
We hope to see you there as we bring lifelong learning opportunities directly to this part of our region!
CRRL accommodates customers who otherwise couldn’t get access to their library materials through Assistive Services, Interlibrary Loan, and our work with the Rappahannock Juvenile Center, through the Lobby Stops program, which is coordinated by Jenny McGee. I sat down with Jenny to learn more about the Lobby Stops.
Did you know that the Central Rappahannock Regional Library has a large collection of popular descriptive videos? These are movies with audio descriptions of the actions taking place on the screen in addition to the standard audio tracks. We think you’ll be very pleased with the size and scope of this growing collection, most of which are on DVD.
The Talking Books program has changed its magazine format from cassettes to digital cartridges. Now, all National Library Service-produced magazines are circulated on digital cartridges. You will notice a big improvement in the enhanced sound quality and navigation capabilities.
