    Adult Services

    Adult services range from selecting books and DVDs to bringing in guest speakers to teaching computer classes. Here are a few other services you can find in the Adult Services section of the library.

    Reference Services

    One or more reference librarians are on duty all of the hours that the library is open, and will assist you when you need help finding information, using library resources, or selecting books for recreational reading.  Phone-in reference service is also available at 455-6310.

    Electronic Magnifiers 

    Aladdin Rainbow Reader, an electronic magnifier which allows a visually impaired reader to view written documents and color photographs, has been donated to the Lynchburg Public Library by the Virginia Department of the Visually Handicapped.  The machines are being placed in libraries across the state, and the Lynchburg Public Library was chosen for the convenience of its location and its extended hours.  The new machine replaces a smaller, 10-year old model that was donated by the Lynchburg Exchange Club.  The older model is now located in the Downtown Branch Library and will continue to be used there.

    Fax Transmissions and Scanning Services 

    • Fax transmission service is available at the information/reference desk at the Main Library and at the downtown Branch.  We only send faxes; no receiving.  Cost is $1.00 per page.  Cover sheets are optional and cost $1.00. 
    • Scanning is also available at the cost of $1.00 for every 5 pages. Please bring a USB drive or CD to save your scan.


    Microfilm readers are available at the Main Library, as is microfilm of Lynchburg newspapers and The New York Times. Cost to print is $.15 per page.


    The Main Library has a typewriter for public use. It is free to use. You will need to provide your own paper.
