During the summer, children and teens have learned to expect an extra helping of everything CRRL typically offers. Cool events for teens, summer reading with prizes, Fun Fest events, and special events with wildlife, just to name a few. In addition to great classes and events, children and teens can also find a nutritous lunch at three of our branches, thanks to partnerships with organizations in our community.
The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles is bringing its DMV Connect program to select branches of Central Rappahannock Regional Library.
The program was developed to serve Virginians who may not be able to travel to a DMV office. You'll be able to get and renew ID cards, licenses, and learners' permits. You can also take care of titles, vehicle registrations, transfers, and plate returns. Please note: DMV Connect is not able to perform any testing or provide birth, death, or marriage certificates.

Appointments are not required—just drop in!
Last week I was on the edge of my seat, along with other lovers of children’s literature, as this year’s Youth Media Awards were announced by the American Library Association. I’m always thrilled when one of my favorites wins, and I rush to read the winners and honor books that I am not familiar with. These books exemplify the richness of children’s literature and are some of the best-of-the-best picture books from 2017.
In The End of Our Story, by Meg Haston, we meet Wilson and Bridget, a young pair who seem meant to be together.
Bridge and Wil have always been together. First, they grew up together. They became inseparable friends soon after and then, even more so, as a couple. Until Bridge broke Wil’s heart, that is. Then, suddenly, the pair that always was just isn’t anymore.

Summer Reading 2017 was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who participated by reading, reviewing, playing games, and completing missions. Raffle prize winners have been drawn and notified by their local branches.
Special thanks to all of our sponsors for supporting Summer Reading!
The beginning of a new school year always feels like a new chapter, with students from preschool to college starting fresh on a year full of learning and growth, working toward goals, like reading independently, conquering quadratic equations, creating a website, or writing a research paper. Whatever level you or your student are at, the public library has resources to help you be successful.
