Hello Friends,

October 17-23 is National Friends of the Library Week! What better time to let you know just how much we appreciate you! Thank you all so much for your support and continued involvement over this past year and a half.

It was wonderful to see many of you at the sale in August--our first in over a year. I cannot think of a better place to reconnect than a book sale. The sale was a success thanks to the many dedicated volunteers and staff members who helped.

Come do some early holiday shopping on November 19th at our first Friday Before Thanksgiving Sale. You don't have to worry about empty shelves or supply chain issues at the Friends bookstore. We have lots of gift-worthy titles ready to go!

The Friday Before Thanksgiving Sale!

Come by the Friends Center and Bookshop on Friday, November 19, 10:00-5:00, for 20% off every purchase and a free reusable shopping bag while supplies last.

Save the Date: Friends of the Library Annual Meeting!

Join us in the Fredericksburg Branch Theater on Monday, December 6, at 6:00 p.m. for our first in-person meeting in nearly two years! Our special guest, author Sarah Warburton, will be speaking on her newest novel and signing her books, which will be available for purchase. Sarah is the daughter of former CRRL Library Trustee Sam Smart and is a lifelong CRRL fan. Her new psychological thriller, You Can Never Tell, is inspired by elements of the Moors Murders and her love of true crime podcasts. You won’t want to miss this tale of thrills, kills, and terror--but also of friendship and empathy.
