In order to provide relief to Libraries and to provide more content to Patrons during this difficult time of sheltering at home, hoopla Digital has curated the hoopla Bonus Borrows Collection, offering more than 1,000 titles of eBooks, audiobooks, comics, movies, music and tv shows for free. Plus patrons will be debited ZERO borrows from their usual 8 borrows through RPL! Start browsing the extended collection today.
We've added some new content to our digital collection! Try a novella, enjoy a new mystery series, catch a film or documentary or listen to a concert through one of our new streaming channels that includes Acorn TV, Indie Flix, Pongalo Novela Club or Stingray Qello. All free through RPL!
Say Goodbye to Overdue Fines
We have some exciting news! Richmond Public Library has eliminated overdue fines for all patrons. Effective February 26, 2020, the library will no longer charge or collect overdue fines. And any past overdue fines on patrons' records have been removed. Though the library still holds patrons accountable for materials lost or damaged, the fees associated with damaged or lost items remain the same. We believe this change is a step toward providing equal access to all of our patrons and achieving our vision to Inform, Enrich, Empower.
Calling all makers! Over 1000 videos, all kinds of arts and crafts.
