  Free Books!

Beginning today (May 8) and every day that someone is at the library (usually Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM), there will be a cart of FREE books on the library’s front porch. This will continue until we reopen the library to allow patrons to check out books again and while our supply of materials lasts.

The books include children’s, juvenile, young adult and adult fiction and non-fiction, including large print editions. We might be a little late putting it out some days, but just knock to remind us! Take whatever you want and pass them on to someone else when you’re finished with them. Hope you find something you like!





E-books and e-audio are available through the Library of Virginia to CCPL patrons. For more information, go to e-books and e-audio.

As of 5 PM on Tuesday, April 7, and until further notice, the Cumberland County Public Library will be completely closed to the public.

Please keep the following in mind:

  • All scheduled library classes and activities are cancelled or postponed to a later date.
  • Use of the public meeting room by all groups is cancelled.
  • The volunteer program is suspended until the library reopens.
  • The AARP Tax Aide program is suspended until further notice.
  • The password for the wireless router at the library has been removed until the pandemic is over and/or the library reopens. Open wireless access is available 24/7 on CCPL or CCPL-5 and can be used from both parking lots. If you decide to get out of your vehicle and use the front porch or the back patio, please maintain proper social distancing and do NOT block any of the doors.
  • All returned items (books, DVDs, audiobooks, etc.) should still be placed in the silver book return at the back of the building. Items will be sanitized and quarantined for at least 2 days before they are checked into the system. Fines will be voided as long as the item was not already more than 2 days overdue at the time it was placed in the dropbox.
  • Renewals can be handled through the library’s online catalog and by phone or email. Calls will still be made about all overdue materials and letters sent, as in the past.
  • Holds placed on materials using the online catalog can no longer be picked up at the back door. The items will be held until the library reopens.
  • Faxing, printing or use of the library’s computers is no longer possible.

Call the library at (804) 492-5807 or contact us by email at for more information or for further assistance. Minimal staff will be available by phone or email from 9 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday only.
