HERE’S HOW IT WORKS

Place requests for items online at RVL.info or call 540-928-2900.

We have a lot of requests to process, so please be patient. Not sure what to get?

Need to send a fax or print something out?


2. Wait for an alert

GET EMAIL, TEXT OR CALL

TIP: Sign up at LibraryElf.com to get email or text notices when your items are ready for pickup. 

If you prefer a phone call, be prepared to wait a little longer until we have time to call you.


3. Come to the library

DURING CURBSIDE HOURS

Check back here or call to verify which days and times your library is open.

Take careful note of instructions so you’ll know what to expect when you arrive.


4. Call us

TELL US YOU’RE HERE

We’ll guide you through the next steps.

Don’t have a mobile phone? Call us before you leave home. We’ll ask for an estimated time of arrival and a description of your vehicle.


5. Pop the trunk

PLEASE STAY IN YOUR CAR

We’ll put your items in the trunk to maintain a safe 6′ distance.

Can’t open your trunk? Tell us when you call. We’ll leave your items on a table for you to retrieve.

After I put items on hold, how long will it take for them to be ready?

As always, we can’t provide estimates due to numerous variables such as if other patrons have requested the same items and whether your branch already has the materials or if they have to be transferred from another branch. Please know we’re working as fast as we can to serve you and thank you for your patience.
