Apply for a Library Card

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.

Applying for a Card

Come to the library, complete an application at the Service Desk. Give the application to a staff member along with identification that includes your current address (driver's license, check, bank statement, utility bill, etc.). Your library card will be issued immediately and is yours to use at any of the public libraries in the Roanoke Valley.

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. Ask staff at the circulation desk for more details. Cards must be renewed every two years. There is a $1 replacement charge for lost or damaged cards.
