Books, Movies & More
How do I find available books, movies, and music?
Thanks to membership in the Roanoke Valley Libraries consortium, all Botetourt County Libraries members have access to the shared collections of four library systems in Botetourt. Roanoke City, Roanoke County, and Salem. Request items from any of these libraries, and our couriers will deliver them to your preferred library location for pickup.
Looking for an eBook or eAudiobook instead? Access that collection here.
How long can I keep my items?
|Books & Books on CD||28 days|
|New or In Demand Books||14 days|
How do I renew items?
Items renew automatically, no action needed! Each item checked out on your card will be renewed automatically two days before it's due, if there are no other holds and the items still have unused renewals. Items may be renewed up to 2 times if no one is waiting for them.
VOX Books are printed books for children that provide audio narration using an audio reader attached to the book. The VOX Reader transformed an ordinary print book into an all-in-one read-along. There are no screens, CDs, or need for an internet connection. Children simply push a button to listen and read-along.
Children can listen to the story 100+ times on a single battery charge. There is a headphone jack for solo listening and an audio prompt when it’s time to turn a page.
VOX Books helps children improve reading comprehension and reading accuracy while learning a new language.
