Rappahannock County Public Library

Opening Announcement

The Rappahannock County Library is open with modified hours and limited services. The library will be open to the public on Mondays from 2:00p.m.-6:00p.m, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10:00a.m.-2:00p.m, and closed to the public on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We will continue to offer curbside services from 10:00a.m-4:00p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays for anyone who prefers to pick up items without interaction. 

We ask that all patrons age 5 and over cover their mouth and nose with a face covering while in the building. We also ask that patrons sanitize their hands for at least 20 seconds upon entering the building (sanitizer provided), and please maintain social distancing in the library.

Some library services are suspended including: Meeting Room Usage, Story Time Programming, and Computer Help.

Due to sanitization measures, social distancing guidelines, and limited staff, no more than  10  persons may be in the library at a time. As a courtesy to other patrons, we ask that all patrons limit their time in the library and adhere to any time limits that may be imposed. Work stations, general library seating, and the browsing/circulation of periodicals are not available at this time. General browsing and checkout of library materials, limited library computer usage, printing, copying, scanning, and faxing services are available. Please follow any signs, as some of our procedures have changed.


The Rappahannock County Library is open with a no contact curbside pickup only option for library holds on Tuesday and Thursday between 10am and 4pm.

Patrons can place holds by telephone (540-675-3780), email (rapplibrary@gmail.com), or on the Rappahannock County Library website (https://rappahannocklibrary.org) using the My Account feature.

Please be advised, there may be delays in item availability due to the quarantining of all recently returned materials. Library staff will notify you when your item(s) are sanitized and ready for pickup.

Items will be located immediately outside of the library on a frequently sanitized table. Items will be clearly labeled with patron’s names. Please practice social distancing, make sure there is only one person at the table at a time, and only touch/take the items with your name on them.

Item returns can be made through the book drop.
