My Legacy Family Tree Webinar on Notes and Documents of Free Persons of Color will be free for the month of September. The book includes historical information on my ancestors Mary and Patty Bowden and Charles and Ambrose Lewis who resided in Fredericksburg as Free Persons of Color in the 17 and 1800's!
Where is your favorite place to read? Beach reading and ironically the setting of the book is the same state where I am beaching!
Speak softly and carry a big book 😂
My son loves the crafts they offer at the England Run library. He named his craft snake Gilbert.
Somewhere between Stephen King & Dean Koontz ~ Christopher Golden masterfully entwines the reader between an ice chilling fright & a hauntingly hopefull tale of a more than windsweeping blizzard where lives & loves are lost & reincarnated as the snow swirls, drifts, batters, & abates... I couldn't put this book down ~ I loved it ♡ Snowblind by Christopher Golden I am glad I wasn't reading this during our snowstorms...
How do you access magazines in Libby. I know they moved from RBDigital as of today but I don’t see them over at Libby. I even checked Magazines in search preferences and they did not come up. Thank you!!!
My daughter has had a library card and been able to use it since 2019. She has NEVER been able to get onto CRRL and use it. She is in High School and needs it for assignments. We have contacted the library several times and nothing. Nothing anyone has done has fixed this.
Wednesday Night Book Chat about to start! Head to our Central Rappahannock Regional Library Book Chat group to join in the fun!
