Library Card Information
It’s easy to get a library card. If you’re a resident of Virginia, you can receive your free library card from any Roanoke Valley public library or bookmobile.
Library Cards allow you to:
- Check out eBooks, eMagazines, and eAudiobooks.
- Place Items on hold through our catalog at rvl.info.
- Access our virtual library’s online resources like Mango Languages, US Major Dailies, The Roanoke Times, Consumer Reports, and more.
Applying for a Card
Come to the library and complete an application during operating hours. Please bring your photo ID that includes your current address (or a photo ID with a non-current address with a check, bank statement, utility bill, etc. that lists your current address).
Please note: Children 12 years of age and under may get a library card with the signature and identification of a parent or guardian. Temporary cards for out-of-state visitors are available for a fee. Call us for more details. Cards must be renewed every two years.
There is a $1 replacement charge for lost or damaged cards.
If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact the South County Library at 540-772-7507.
