We have expanded our library services again! As of July 1, with your Piedmont Library card you can search for items held at libraries throughout the state and request items yourself for inter-library loan. They will be delivered to our library and we'll return them for you. In addition, you will be able to directly log into the SD State Library's databases from the comfort of your home. Information is on the Piedmont Valley Library website or you can call and ask for Jane at 718-3663.

Don't forget - the Piedmont Valley Library has a free magazine swap table and offers free downloadables of e-books and audiobooks. There are thousands of titles, including the best sellers. Also, we DO offer interlibrary loan, so if we don't have the title you are seeking, we'll do our best to get it for you. Please present your library card when checking out at the front desk at Piedmont Valley Library. Don't have a card? It's FREE to Meade County residents!!
