Valley Libraries Connection
Your Augusta County Library card gives you three times the borrowing power through a cooperative effort with the Staunton and Waynesboro Libraries called the Valley Libraries Connection (VLC). 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 run 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 also place holds on items and have them delivered to the location of your choice!
Who can get a card?
Library cards are free to all Virginia residents. A drivers license with a valid address or a legal document with current address and picture ID is required to get a library card. The VLC card is good for two years.
If a child is under the age of 12, a parent or guardian must also apply for a library card. A parent or guardian must sign a child’s application card if they are under the age of 12. The Library permits children access to all materials in the system. If you desire to limit your child’s access to any library services, you should make this desire known to your child.
Residents of other states may obtain a card with a $25 deposit and may check out no more than two items at one time. The $25 deposit will be refunded upon clearing the account and turning in the temporary card.
What does my card get me?
We offer thousands of books, movies, and audio materials plus access to the library’s internet stations. Your library card also allows you the ability to download digital magazines, audiobooks and ebooks for free and gets you access to our online databases.
