Craig County Public Library has a small collection that focuses on popular materials of interest to readers of all ages. Our collection includes books for adults, young adults, and children, large print books, audiobooks, videos for adults and children, local history materials, magazines and newspapers, and more.

Borrowing from Other Libraries
While we are working hard to improve our collection, we do not have many of the resources available at larger libraries. We are happy to help our patrons fulfill their information needs by assisting them with borrowing from nearby libraries (e.g., NRPLCoop and RVL libraries) or, in some cases, arranging for an interlibrary loan. Please ask at the circulation desk for more information.
Public Access Computers
The library has 8 Public Access Computers available on a first-come, first-served basis, including 3 laptops, that can be reserved in advance for use by adults. The time limit on the regular computers is 30 minutes; the time limit on the laptops is 2 hours. The limits are enforced only if someone is waiting to use a computer. Computers are shut down 15 minutes prior to closing time.
Our library catalog is not available online at this time.
