Central Virginia Regional Library

Our local library in Farmville, Va has some amazing resources. I encourage all parents to take their children to sign up for a free library card. There are so many book and media options available for check-out. If you live in the following counties you are eligible for a card: Albermarle, Amelia, Appomattox, Buckingham, Charlotte, Cumberland, Fluvanna, Lunenburg, Nelson, Nottoway, and Prince Edward. There is a link below for library cards.

Once you have a library card, please go to or download the Hoopla app. You will register with your library card and can borrow free digital eBooks, audiobooks, comics, movies, music and more 24/7!
