Welcome

Roanoke Public Library Logo

Providing access to knowledge and information to inform, educate, entertain and serve.

Maintenance to be performed over Memorial Day weekend (Early Saturday Morning thru Monday) will require actual server downtime, resulting in the catalog and other services to be unavailable.  This includes borrowing from Overdrive (Libby) as well as new registrations for Hoopla.  

The roof above the library is leaking which is causing water issues in the library.  We have taken precautions to protect the books and computers until the roof can be repaired. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Roanoke Public Library's 2022 summer reading program "Upside Down For Books! Exploring Opposites for children ages 2-12 years old. Registration required. Sponsored by the Roanoke Lions Club.

Need material from the Roanoke Public Library, but cannot get here when we are open?  Our solution: introducing “After Hours Pick-Up”.  Call us and let us know what to pull for you and we will place in a plastic bag in a secure locker for you to pick up at the time that works for you.  The lockers are located right off the parking lot (across from 4th Street) near the “Crestwoods” entrance under an overhang that is well lighted.  A code will be given to you to enter your locker.  Instructions for opening the lockers will be located on both sides of the lockers.

Check out the eBooks tab above for eBooks, eAudiobooks, and eMagazines.

Masks are now optional!  

The quarantine process for the books will end on April 1.  If you get overdue notices after that date, they are accurate and should be dealt with as soon as possible.  We will still call about overdues.
