Welcome to Minecraft Club

Welcome to the Henrico County Public Library Minecraft Server! The server will be open on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons from 3 –5 pm. Library staff will be on the server to monitor gameplay and to answer any questions that you may have. While on the server, please abide by the rules listed below.

Server Rules:

  1. No offensive language in chat or in gameplay
  2. Players agree to be respectful of each other
  3. No griefing (griefing is defined as breaking other player’s creations without their consent)

Server IP Address:


Q: What version of Minecraft is the server?
A: We try to keep the server updated to the latest version. Check the event listing on our online calendar to find out which version we are currently running.

Q: How do I get on the server?
A: Make sure that you are running the correct version of Java Minecraft – as opposed to Pocket Edition/Bedrock Minecraft. Once you have launched the game, click on 'Multiplayer' and then copy and paste the IP address into the box. Click on 'play' and you will enter the server.

Q: What if I can’t get on the server?
A: Our server can only hold a limited number of players at once. It is possible that the server has reached its maximum number of players. Try again in a little while and you may be able to get on. It is also possible that you may be running a different version of Minecraft (see above).

Q: What if I have a problem while I am on the server?
A: Just hit the ‘t’ button to type your question into chat and a staff member will help you.

Q: While in gameplay, how do I return to the server hub?
A: If you want to get back to the server hub (the library in gameplay), just type /spawn and hit enter. You will return to the library!

Our Minecraft Server is hosted by the wonderful people at Apex Hosting.

Let's get crafting!
