The James City County Library covers 35,000 square feet and houses about 150,000 volumes and many behind-the-scenes work areas. It features  meeting rooms and a computer lab.  Wireless access is available throughout the library. Ample parking is available. This library was funded through a James City County bond referendum in March 1994 and was opened in July 1996.

The library extends services beyond the walls of its buildings and out into the community. The Mobile Library Services (MLS) departments, part of the Adult and Youth Services divisions, play a central role in delivering regularly scheduled service to residents who are the least able to visit the library. These audiences include children in preschools and childcare centers, youth who have limited ability to get to library buildings from where they live, homebound adults, and residents living in adult care centers.
