It's vital that Friends speak up for our library!

  • Spotsylvania branches are open fewer hours than those in Stafford or the City of Fredericksburg. If you would like to see those hours expanded, contact your Spotsylvania representative.
  • The library provides books and other materials to represent the wide diversity of our community, and encourages all families and individuals to make their own reading choices. If you support every individual’s freedom to read and the library’s role in ensuring materials are available for everyone in our community, contact the CRRL Board of Trustees by email or speak at a board meeting.
