About the Valley Libraries ConnectionVLC Card

Your Augusta County Library card gives you three times the borrowing power through a cooperative effort with the Staunton and Waynesboro Libraries. With your card, you have access to three large collections of books, movies, music, and more. Our catalog system shows what each of the libraries has and allows you to use your card at all of these locations.

Courier services runs between the three main libraries each business day and to the outlying Augusta County Library branch and stations every week. Because we have this service, you may pick up or drop off materials at whichever library is most convenient to you. You can place holds to have items delivered to the location of your choice. There is also a book drop at the Augusta County Government Center in Verona for you to return your books.
