Campbell County Public Library System, VA

Altavista Visitor’s Center

The Altavista Visitor’s Center is now open inside the Staunton River Memorial Library in Altavista. The project is a partnership between Campbell County Public Library System and the Town of Altavista. The Visitor’s Center features tourist information for Altavista, Campbell County, and surrounding areas, alongside a rotating exhibit space.

The Visitor’s Center is a passive space for visitors to navigate independently. One side is tourist info, and one side is an exhibit, currently one that shines a light on some of Altavista’s history.

Regular hours for the Visitor’s Center follow the Altavista library hours: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday, 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.; Thursday, 9:30 a.m. – 7 p.m.; and Saturday, 9:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Citizens and visitors to the area are all welcome!
