Loan Periods & Fees
*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. There will be no overdue fines on any materials you have checked out at this time. All book drops are closed. Please do not bring your items to the library until further notice.
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.
