Loan Information

To check out library material, you must have a Roanoke Valley Library Card. Material is due back in the library or in the return book drop on or before the specified due date unless renewed. Renewals may be made in person, by telephone or online. Overdue material is assessed a fine for each day beyond the specified due date. If the balance on your card exceeds $10, you may not check out material from the library.
