Important Notice

The Lynchburg Public Library has decided to leave the LION Consortium.  As a result, the reciprocal borrowing agreement between Lynchburg and the Amherst County Public Library will end on January 1, 2015.

Both localities will still issue cards to residents of the other locality, but books and other items may not be placed on hold or requested by residents of the other locality.  Any book borrowed after December 2, 2014 will be due back on December 23, 2014 and may not be renewed.

The Amherst County Public Library apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.  We will make every effort to obtain materials that you need.  If we do not have something in the collection, we will purchase it or obtain it through interlibrary loan.

Thank you for your patience during this time of transition.
