Central Rappahannock Regional Library continues to monitor the latest information about the COVID-19 coronavirus and follow directions from national, state, and local health officials, including the CDC and the Virginia Department of Health.

Your items should not accrue any overdue fines during this time; if they do, we will gladly waive them. Thank you for your patience.
