We know that the Culpeper County Library is a source of pride for our community. Our Friends’ group is a source of pride, as well.  Please call the Library at 540-825-8691 to find out how you can join and support this outstanding group.

Death Café:  Coffee Cake & Conversation about Death

Friday, October 20, 2:00 - 3:30; in the Library's Meeting Room

What is a “Death Café” and why talk about Death?

Death is a normal part of life; it is not a failure to be avoided or hidden.  At Death Café, people, often strangers, gather in an open, respectful place to eat dessert, drink coffee and to discuss whatever they wish on dying and death. 

Death Café is part of a global movement whose main objective is to increase awareness of death while helping people make the most of the rest of their lives. 

A Death Café is a group-directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes - no products or services are sold or endorsed. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session. 

Go to www.deathcafe.com for more detailed information.
