Food for Fines & Teen Read Week October 7-13
Fredericksburg, Virginia, October 2, 2018 - During the week of October 7-13, Central Rappahannock Regional Library (CRRL) is celebrating Food for Fines. For every non-perishable food item that customers bring to any CRRL branch (nothing expired, nothing dented), the library will deduct a dollar from the customer's overdue fines, up to a maximum amount of $20.00. One item = $1.00 applied to one customer account.

Donations may not be used to pay for lost or damaged library materials. All donations benefit local area food banks. Contributions are welcome even if customers do not have overdue fines.

During this week, CRRL is also celebrating Teen Read Week. This year's theme is "It's Written in the Stars." Teens can stop by any branch for out-of-this-world activities and to vote for the best teen books of the year.

For more information, contact Branch Services Coordinator Joy McIntire,, 540-372-1144 ext. 7005.
