Telling Our Stories

One of the wonderful things about the library is that it is a place for people to come in; from the cold of winter, or the heat of summer; to sit awhile, find a good book, catch up on emails, or browse through the collection of items regarding the history of Fredericksburg. It is always amazing where people come from! Last summer there was a group traveling across the U.S. from France, and just happened to stop in at the Fredericksburg Community Library! The language barrier didn’t keep us from communicating our love for libraries and books!
We each have a story to tell. Those who have grown up in Fredericksburg; have lived here all their lives; or have lived here for a time, have memories of that time. This year the library board would like to make an effort to bring people together and tell their stories! You will be hearing more about this throughout the year. For now, you are invited to come to the library on Tuesday, March 31. We’ll be sharing ideas of how to preserve these stories. If you have ever thought “It sure would be great to get some of Mom & Dad’s, or Grandma & Grandpa’s stories down”, please join us on March 31, 6 p.m.!
