Updating Your Library Card
For your protection, Powhatan County Public Library requires that you periodically update your card. This guarantees your address, phone number and email address are correct.
Required Before Using Materials
You may need to update your card before you will be allowed to reserve or renew library materials or view your patron record online. Please call or stop by the library to update your card.
The maximum number of items that a cardholder may have checked out is 50. There is a 10-item limit on DVDs and audiobooks, which are included in the 50.
Check Out Time & Renewals
All library materials circulate for 14 days. Most items can be renewed 3 times; however high demand items may not be renewed due to holds.
