The library was presented with a donation to be used for new books, the first distribution of funds by Simply Hand Made, the wonderful gift shop down the street. Simply Hand Made was established in 2016 as a non-profit shop, located in the 101-year-old Fredericksburg Jail building, with the purpose of Promoting local artists and makers, Preserving the historic jail building, and Providing for the Fredericksburg Community Library. Please click on the “Simply Hand Made” page above for more information about this great place! Thanks to the Simply Hand Made Board and volunteers who make this all possible!!
2018 marks the 20th anniversary of the opening of our library. Special events will be happening- stay tuned!
Listen to the mustn’ts, child.
Listen to the don’ts.
Listen to the shouldn’ts,
Listen to the never haves,
Then listen close to me…..
Anything can happen, child.
Anything can be.”
Warm wishes for a bright year filled with possibilities, from all your friends at the library!
