Halifax County-South Boston Public Library System



The library is closed through June 10, 2020 in accordance with Virginia Governor Ralph Northam's Executive Order 55.

Library book drops are closed. Please refrain from returning library materials until after the library reopens.  Any overdue fines accrued during this time will be forgiven.  Due dates on materials currently checked out have been extended to June 12, 2020.

Online services and resources will continue to be available through this website.  Any questions or correspondence may be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  



The library has developed a multi-phase plan for reopening.  Phase 1 will run from June 8-June 10, during which time book drops will be opened so that the library can accept returning materials. 

Phase 2 will begin on June 11 and will see the library offering curbside pickup of materials.  Customers may call or email the library to request up to 10 items.  Staff will pull the items from the shelves, check them out to the customer, and place them in  a bag with the customer's name on it.  Bags will be placed on carts outside the libraries where customers will pick them up.

No customers will be allowed in the libraries during Phase 2 and there will be no in-house library programs offered during Phase 2.

Phase 3 and Phase 4 have no set start dates and are largely dependent upon the public health environment at that time.  Customers will be allowed back in the buildings in Phase 3, but in limited numbers.  Social distancing practices will be in place and customers may be required to wear masks.  Special hours of service will be set aside for senior citizens and those with serious medical conditions.  There will be no in-house library programs during Phase 3.
