Adventure Begins at Your Library

Wednesday, May 15th - Thursday, August 15th

Discover Stafford is pleased to be a sponsor of Central Rappahannock Regional Library’s Summer Reading program for 2024. Children, teens, and adults can log their reading, complete activity badges, and write reviews to earn points that can be redeemed for prizes. For children and teens especially, Summer Reading is a vital way to beat the “Summer Slide,” which is learning loss that occurs each summer when kids don’t read regularly or participate in enrichment activities. Public libraries encourage young readers with rewards for reading, including milestone tags for minutes read and brand-new books when they achieve 1,000 and 2,000 minutes. Caregivers and other adults can model reading and participate in Summer Reading, too. Adults who reach 2,000 points earn a colorful mini notebook and pen set adorned with the perfect quote that pairs history and reading! Start your summer reading journey today at

Be sure to attend the hundreds of no-cost library events for all ages, all summer long. Ranging from summer concerts to history lectures and animal visits, there’s something for everyone.
