The Roanoke County Public Library is the community’s primary resource for lifelong learning and the place people turn to for the discovery of ideas, the joy of reading, and the power of information. There are six libraries in Roanoke County: South County Library, Bent Mountain, Glenvar, Hollins, Mount Pleasant, and Vinton. The operation of the Roanoke County public library system is made possible in part through the support of Friends of the Library, a non-profit public charity as designated by the Internal Revenue Service. Contributions to Friends are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law and according to your personal situation. For more information, call (540) 772-7507 or visit www.yourlibrary.us.
