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.

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.
