Fabulous Friday: Sharks!

The CRRL is celebrating these “fin-tastic fish” at Fabulous Friday STEM classes in July for grades K-6. You will find out how sharks help maintain healthy oceans, range in size and shape, are threatened with extinction, and more. This is one of many activities that will help you complete the Shark Week mission and earn a badge and points for Summer Reading prizes.

Get Ready for Summer Reading at the Library

If you are like me and have children in your life, you are in the thick of a tremendously busy season: the end of the school year. Testing, concerts, recitals, graduations, award banquets, and field trips fill the calendar. It may seem a long way off with everything that is going on right now, but Summer Reading at the library is just around the corner.

Summer is a critical time to keep your child reading (avoid summer slide!), and the library wants to help children be motivated to keep reading all summer long. The first step is to visit librarypoint.org/summer.

Building a Wild World

For those of us who love nature and the outdoors, there are few things more satisfying than making the world a better place for local wildlife. Learning about wild animals and how to protect them is a joy for kids and families who are avid animal lovers!

This summer, the library is pleased to welcome The Wildlife Center of Virginia at our special upcoming Building a Wild World events. Join us to meet some of the animals that make Virginia their home and learn about ways that we can help protect their habitats. Sign up for these events begins June 1. Grades K-6.

With Central Rappahannock Regional Library’s 3rd annual CRRL-Con coming up on May 20, now is the perfect time to indulge your comic book craving. Whether you are new to comics, getting back to them after a break, or have always been a comic book fan, the variety of characters and storylines in comics means there is always something out there to entertain you. The public library has an extensive collection of comic books and provides a great way to “test drive” something new to see if you like it. Checking comics out means you can try one and, if you don’t like it, return it and try another, no financial commitment needed. You can even borrow several and see which is your favorite. The library has the big names, like Thor, Spider-Man, Superman, Batman, and even Archie and Casper. But the possibilities are endless, so here are a few more suggestions.
