CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (March 2011) – AlbemarleFamily magazine is excited to announce that its popular annual Family Organizer & Directory will now be published semi-annually. In conjunction, AlbemarleFamily is also branching out with the launch of two new publications: the Women’s Directoryand the Home Directory. Like the Family Organizer, these two directories will both be in an 8×5 format and offered on a semi-annual basis.

The Women’s Directory will feature articles and information specifically for local women, including doctors and spas, wonderful fitness classes and shop local resources. The Home Directory will be great for area families looking to buy or sell their home, tackle home-improvement projects, find elegant furnishings and more. This book will be the Charlottesville homeowner’s go-to resource to help get the job done.

Robin Johnson-Bethke, co-publisher, says, “We’re thrilled to expand into a series of Directories – readers love this product from us and I know personally how very useful it is. Not only do I use it, but I often see copies peeking out of other women’s bags at sports practice and out shopping! Beyond reader demand, there have also been requests from local businesses for specialized products to reach this powerful targeted audience.”

These three fantastic directories will be packed with useful information that families will want to keep at their fingertips, including timely calendars, phone numbers for great local businesses, Charlottesville event highlights, emergency services and amazing resources for those who are new to the area.
