After a two year review and development process between the Central Rappahannock Regional Library and the Library of Virginia, the Deaf Culture Digital Library (DCDL) was established in 2021. This site provides resources about deaf culture, acquires and preserves a collection of deaf resources in digital formats, and offers assistance to Virginia residents and library staff in all libraries in the state of Virginia.
DCDL is guided by a steering committee composed of diverse deaf individuals from a variety of backgrounds across the Commonwealth.
The Central Rappahannock Regional Library (CRRL) is an award-winning, Virginia Library Association Region 5 public library system that serves the city of Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania, Stafford, and Westmoreland counties in Virginia. It has a longstanding history of providing assistive and access services, including serving as the Fredericksburg Subregional Library for the Blind and Print Disabled ("Talking Books" library).
This site is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services. It is managed by the Library Development and Networking Division of the Library of Virginia.
