Borrowing and Renewing

Borrowing privileges are extended to Randolph-Macon College (R-MC) students, faculty, and staff. Retired R-MC faculty and staff, R-MC alumni, and Hanover County teachers may apply for a card free of charge.

Any adult resident Virginia may purchase a library card at a cost of $25 for the first year and $10 per year thereafter. A current driver's license or photo ID must be presented at the Information Desk when applying.

Purchase of a library card allows the holder to check out physical materials such as print books and DVDs but does not provide access to library computers or online resources.


ID Card 

A Randolph-Macon College ID or current library card is required for every borrowing transaction.

Please note:
