Get a Library Card

Your Central Rappahannock Regional Library card is the key to a range of library services and a wealth of information online. Please fill out this form in its entirety. Required fields are marked.

Your application will be processed within 3 business days. Your account will be activated and your card will be mailed to you (if necessary). If you have questions, please call us at 540/372-1144. If you wish to receive a library card more quickly, you can stop by any of our branches during open hours (with valid ID or proof of address).

The CRRL region includes Stafford, Spotsylvania and Westmoreland counties and the city of Fredericksburg. These localities supply a portion of their tax money to support the CRRL, and anyone who resides, owns property, or is a student, a teacher or county and city government employee within the region may obtain a library card free of charge. The library has reciprocal agreements with the counties of Caroline, Culpeper, Fauquier, Orange, and Prince William that allow those residents to obtain free cards either by showing a card from their library or proof of residency. All others must pay an annual family fee of thirty dollars. Senior citizens (62+) pay fifteen dollars.

Your library card is good at all of the CRRL branches. A CRRL library card allows you to:

  • check out print, audio, and video materials
  • access our online databases through our website
  • reserve a public access computer at our branches
  • check out at any branch and return to any other branch
  • check out videos for a week and all other items for two weeks
  • renew in person, by telephone or online unless reserve requests have been recorded for those items

There are no fines charged for overdue children and teen materials, magazines and mass-market paperbacks, but replacement fees are levied if the item is lost or damaged. All other materials, with the exception of the DVDs, have overdue fees of .20 cents per day up to $3.00. The overdue fees for DVDs are $1.00 per day up to $6.00 per item. The most you will pay for overdue materials is $20.00; we will waive any overdue fees that exceed this amount. 

If this application is for a child 17 or under, the name of a parent or guardian is required.
Statement of Responsibility
I agree to be responsible for all materials charged to this card with or without my consent, to observe all library rules, to pay promptly all charges, and to notify the Library of any changes to this information.
Please select the branch that will be your primary branch.
