Gopher lies down and kicks up his legs.”There’s nothing you can’t learn when you have books”, he says. Porcupine smooths down her quills. “If you can read,” she adds. I smile. “And it’s even better when you have a library.”    

from “Our Library”, by Eve Bunting

The stories people tell have a way of taking care of them. If stories come to you, care for them. And learn to give them away where they are needed. Sometimes a person needs a story more than food to stay alive.”

Crow and Weasel, Barry Lopez, 1990

Family Stories

Family stories, handed down. Oral history, brought alive through the telling of these stories. If you have ever wished you had some of these stories recorded, the voices of loved ones  preserved, the library may be able to help, through both people and resources. Thanks to a grant from the Noble Foundation, the library now has equipment for videotaping conversations centered around local history and family stories. We call it the Fredericksburg Oral History Project. Volunteers have compelled a questionnaire to help guide the conversation, and are also ready to help with running the camera and the interview itself. If you would like to preserve your family stories, or local history, please contact the library!

Christmas at the Library

Santa Claus will be comin’ to town on Saturday, Dec. 12, at 11 a.m., visiting the library, and listening to the Christmas wishes of all the good little boys and girls.
Gingerbread house making will start at 10 a.m. Space is limited, so you must have a spot (and a house) reserved ahead of time. Call the library, or stop in, to sign up. We wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas, and the most joyous of New Years!

If you & your family would like to add an ornament to the Community Christmas tree, you may drop it off at the library. Santa will be lighting the tree and starting his trains to run under it. Come and join in the fun!

Thank you, Volunteers!

The 17th Annual VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION DINNER will be held November 10 at the MCA Church in Fredericksburg. We celebrate our dedicated volunteers, recognizing the fact that we couldn’t  have the library without them! Our guest speaker will be John Lorson, local writer, cyclist, and photographer, who will share stories and photos of his travels in the slow lane, in his presentation titled “Shots Along The Way.” Many know John through his weekly humor column “Send Help,” which has run in local newspapers for more than 18 years and is accompanied by the comic illustrations of his wife, Kristin Lorson.  We look forward to a very fun evening! THANK YOU, VOLUNTEERS- you’re the best!!
