Get a Library Card

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

You can apply for a library card at the Check Out 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.

You can use your card to check out and return books at all library locations. If you have any questions, please call 757.259.7753 to speak with Circulation staff.
