Library Cards and Free Books for Kindergarten Students

What's the most important card you own? Here at CRRL, we think it's your library card! A library card is a key to lifelong learning, a ticket to new opportunities and experiences, and an all-access pass to everything CRRL has to offer.

Between January 17 and February 17, 2023, kindergarten students in Spotsylvania, Stafford, and Westmoreland counties and the City of Fredericksburg will receive something special from their teachers: an application for a library card! Look for your kindergarten student to bring home a library card application, or for your school to send out an electronic link. Simply fill out the application or click on the link, and look for your child’s library card to arrive in your mailbox. The goal is for every child to have the opportunity to explore the wonderful world of over 700,000 books, DVDs and audios; grade-saving homework help; and fun after-school enrichment opportunities available to them from the public library.

From January 17 to March 31, 2023, kindergarten students who visit any branch of the Central Rappahannock Regional Library are invited to stop by a Youth Services desk where they can choose a free book—just for being in kindergarten!
