Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

In order to safeguard our community and slow the spread of Coronavirus  (COVID-19), Roanoke County Public Library will be closed. An end date has not been established for these changes, but we plan to return to regular operation as soon as conditions allow.

Call us at 540-777-8781 to reach our admin line. Library staff will be checking messages throughout the day, from 10am-5pm Monday-Saturday and from 1pm-5pm on Sundays.

RCPL has pulled together resources to help during these times: Resources for Resilience 

We encourage you to use the library’s virtual resources remotely, which are available for free 24/7.
