The Central Rappahannock Regional Library Headquarters is located in historic downtown Fredericksburg, Virginia, and serves as the Headquarters library as well as the administrative offices for the library system. It is a 37,000 square foot building originally constructed in 1907 and renovated in 1990-91 with funds from the Friends of the Library, a Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) grant, and the City of Fredericksburg.

The building includes a 12-seat computer lab and another 10 public-access computers throughout the building, a quiet study area, public law library, a local history and genealogy collection, three meeting rooms, and a 165-seat theater. Each month, local artists display their work in the Atrium. The building is accessible with power doors at the ground level entrance, two accessible parking spaces in our lot with an accessible drop-off space on Caroline Street. Parking is on-street or in our lot behind the building.
