library cards

While the library is closed due to the pandemic, you can sign up for a temporary digital card.

Anyone who resides or owns a business or property in a city or county that funds the Williamsburg Regional Library is eligible for a library card. Card privileges may be restricted. A list of privileges is available upon request.

You can sign up for a library card at the Circulation Desk at one of our libraries or through our Mobile Library Services. You must present picture identification and proof of current address at the time of registration and therefore we do not offer this service online. Most users present a driver’s license, but if you have just moved here, you can use a bill, lease agreement, or closing documents to show current address. Children may be identified by a parent or guardian with photo ID and proof of current address. Child must be present.

Your library card can be used at any WRL location. Books can be returned at any location or at one of our community book drops. If you have any questions, please call 757.259.7753 to speak with Circulation staff.

See our policies page for library card policies.
