BRCC - patrons need a library card obtained by giving a Social Security number and a local address. 

UVA – patrons can request a free library card with identification including a Virginia driver's license or an ID card from a Virginia higher education institution
Massanutten Regional Library - patrons can request a free library card with proof of residency for Rockingham, Page, Albemarle, Augusta, Greene, Madison, Rappahannock, Shenandoah or Warren Counties of Virginia, and Hardy or Pendleton Counties in West Virginia.

Most United States libraries participate in a service called Interlibrary Loan in which libraries lend materials to one another on patrons' behalf.  Check the local public, school, or college library where you have a library card for more details about Interlibrary Loan.
