If you’re a resident of the County of Roanoke and do not have a Roanoke Valley Library Card, you’re eligible for an eCard. (Under 12? You’re eligible too, but your parent or guardian should complete this application for you).
If you already have a physical Roanoke Valley Library card, you don’t need to sign up for an eCard! Your current card can be used for online services. Only one card of either type is permitted per user.
All cards that were set to expire or have expired have been extended to June 1.
Apply for an eCard here directly on our catalog site or fill out this form and one of our librarians will contact you.
