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!

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.

The Owl and the pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.

The Owl and the Pussycat is a funny sort of poem indeed and only one of Mr. Lear's many nonsense verses. Anyone who would travel along with a Pobble who has no toes or take a sail in a sieve with the blue-handed Jumblies is welcome to be a friend of Mr. Lear.

More than 150 years ago, life was turned upside-down for residents in our communities. Stafford County was occupied by Union troops. Fredericksburg changed hands many times between Union and Confederate and was the scene of one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War. Spotsylvania County had the battles of Spotsylvania Courthouse, the Wilderness, and Chancellorsville. Thousands of men encamped and fought here. Many died here. Our state—even just our own area—has some of the most fought-over ground in the country.
