Welcome to the Cafe Book website

Cafe Book is a partnership between Central Rappahannock Regional Library and area middle schools in the City of Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and Stafford County Schools.  Teens at participating schools eat lunch in the school library while they talk about books they've chosen to read from a list of the latest and hottest books published for teenagers, which have been selected by the participating public and school librarians. After reading their choice/s from the selected titles, the teens share their thoughts with each other. The ultimate goal is to produce a booklist of each school's favorite recently published titles.  Cafe Book meets in the schools either the first semester (early to mid-September through early to mid Janurary) OR second semester (late January through early May). The goal is to meet at each school at least nine times during a semester; every other week if possible.

Librarians will work together to ensure each student fills out a library card application, even if they already have a card. This allows us to update their information and provide library cards to students who don’t have one.
