Drive-Thru Pick-Up Hours & Returns

Beginning on Monday, May 18, 2020, our Drive Through will be open every Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. so that our customers may conveniently pick up items on hold.                                                

Holds may be placed two ways:

  • By calling 804-451-3998 and leaving a detailed message 


  • Through our online Library Catalog using your library card number and PIN (your PIN is the last four digits of your library card number).

* Also, borrowed items may be returned 27/7 at our Drive Through dropbox. *

If you would like to have a Petersburg Public Library card but do not have one, a card may be issued at our Drive Through during the hours previously listed by bringing a photo ID. 

Remember, all Virginia residents may receive a Petersburg Public Library card at no charge.  

Beginning on Friday, June 5, 2020, we are offering fax and photocopy services at the Drive-Through window.  Photocopies are limited to letter-size, 8 1/2″ X 11″, at this time.  Faxing is $2.00 for the first page, and $1.00 for each additional page.  Photocopies are $0.15 (15 cents) per page. 

We look forward to serving you at Petersburg Public Library.
