The Johnston Memorial Library building is open with extra precautions and limited hours. Face masks and social distancing are required for all visitors.

The Circulation Department provides users with contact-free checkout of materials. Users who are unable to be present on campus are encouraged to use the online service tools such as, Ask-A-Librarian, Text-A-Librarian and phone requests (804.524.5582) to communicate with librarians and receive assistance. Library instruction is available virtually by reservation only. Please contact Darnell Law at or by phone (804.524.5536) to make a reservation.

Out of an abundance of caution, the individual study rooms, group study rooms, conference rooms and basement computer lab are closed to users. Public computers are available on the first and second floors of the library by reservation only.

While the Lindsay-Montague Hall building remains closed, limited access to the Special Collections & Archives’ materials and collections is available by request from Monday – Friday by appointment only. Reference and research assistance are available via the online service tools.
