Get a Library Card

Getting a library card is quick & easy

Visit your local library branch to get started.

What you will need

  2. If your current address is different from the address on your photo ID, you will also need to bring proof of current address, such as:
    • DMV Change of address card
    • Recent utility bill mailed to your current address
    • Recent pay stub with current address

Who can get a card

  • All residents of the City of Hopewell, Prince George County, and Dinwiddie County of all ages are granted full use of all services of The Appomattox Regional Library System.
  • Everyone is welcome to use the services of the Appomattox Regional Library on library property. The Administration reserves the right to determine if nonresidents may be granted extended privileges.
  • Anyone 14 or older can get their own card with identification as listed above.
  • For children under 14, a legal parent or guardian must present identification as listed above and sign for the child.
  • Institutions may also be granted an organizational card that grants full borrowing privileges with the assurance that the Institution follows all regulations.
    • The institution must designate one responsible individual in a letter signed by the head of the organization. The responsible individual must present this letter and government issued photo ID to apply for a library card.
