As a result, Powhatan County Public Library will remain closed until further notice.

Library WiFi and e-branch resources will continue to be available 24/7. During the closure, Library staff will also continue to be available Monday – Friday during regular County business hours to provide remote support to patrons. For Library assistance, please contact 804-598-5670 or library@powhatanlibrary.net

While the library is closed, the book drop will also be closed. Fines accrued during the closure will be waived. For the most up-to-date information please see our Facebook page.
