Press Release - Orange County Main Library Closing for Flooring Repairs

The Orange County Main Library will close at 12:30 p.m. on Friday, February 15, 2019, and be closed through Monday, February 18, 2019, for a repair project.  The Main Library experienced water damage from a broken pipe in November 2018.  This project will replace flooring that had to be removed as a result of the water damage.
During the closure, the outdoor book return will be available.  Our other two (2) branch libraries will continue to be open on Friday, February 15, 2019 until 5:30 p.m., and for their normal Saturday hours.   Wilderness Branch, located at 6421 Flat Run Road, Locust Grove, is open from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturdays and the Gordonsville Branch, located at 319 N. Main Street, Gordonsville, is open from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Saturdays.  All locations will be closed on Monday, February 18, 2019, in observance of the Presidents’ Day holiday.  As with any closure, staff will back-date returns awaiting check-in upon the Library’s reopening, so no additional fines are accrued.
Our computer systems, including those that govern access to digital resources such as Overdrive and Hoopla, will be inoperable during the closure as the flooring beneath our computer equipment is part of the repair.  The online catalog, renewals, and other online functions are anticipated to be offline the afternoon of Saturday, February 16, 2019, through Monday, February 18, 2019.  Our Internet and book checkout systems will also be offline at the branch libraries.
For questions regarding holds, returns, or other circulation matters, please call the Wilderness Branch at (540) 854-5310 or the Gordonsville Branch at (540) 832-0712. For more information, please contact Library Director, Katie Hill, at (540) 661-5444 or
We apologize to our patrons for this temporary disruption.
