Cover to The End of Our Story by Meg Haston

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.

Teen Tech Week: Libraries Are For Creating, March 4-10

I think. I create. I invent. Create it at your library during Teen Tech Week, March 4-10. Our branches offer teens a space to explore, create, and share while extending learning beyond the classroom. Joining in the fun is easy! Teens in grades 6-12 are invited to drop by the teen area anytime during the week and get creative with special activities just for Teen Tech Week.  Share your creations with your friends and with us by mentioning Central Rappahannock Regional Library on Facebook, or @crrlnews on Twitter and Instagram using #TTW18.

Connect to the DMV at the Library!

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.

Fredericksburg Branch will host DMV Connect from 10:00-3:00 on Thursday, February 22.

Books are picture perfect way to start school year

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.

Sometimes, it seems like everybody goes hiking and camping in the great outdoors in the sticky, sweltering summertime. Those are the days when the bugs are at their worst, and the heat alone can leave you panting on the side of the trail before an hour is done. For an easier time of it, grab your gear in the spring or fall. Cooler days and mostly bug-free trails make for great hiking adventures, whether by the ocean or in the mountains. November 17 is Take a Hike Day, but any day is a good day to hike.
