If you come in and don’t find what you are looking for, the staff at West Branch will be happy to put it on hold for you and have it sent from our Main library.  A book on the shelf at Main can be here at West in a day.  Books not in the VCPL system can also be obtained by using Interlibrary loan.  Our mission is to have you leave our branch satisfied and looking forward to your next visit.

In addition to materials West Branch also offers Computer and Internet access.  We have 7 computers available for Patron use as well as WIFI, so you can bring your laptop and get comfortable in our seating area while using our wireless Internet Access.  Printing is available with all 7 public computers.
