On August 1, 2013, Library Director Marcy Sims was surprised by City leaders, Friends of VBPL, Virginia Beach Library Foundation and Library Board leaders and library staff as they revealed to her that the children's room at the TCC/VB Joint-Use Library has been named in her honor. Marcy will retire on Sept. 1, 2013, after 42 years at Virginia
Beach Public Library.
The Marcy Sims Children's Room includes $180,000 in special features and early literacy activity centers funded by the Virginia Beach Library Foundation ($130,000) and the Friends of the Virginia Beach Public Library ($50,000).
You and your family will get to see what's inside the awesome Marcy Sims Children's Room and the rest of the TCC/City of Virginia Beach Joint-Use Library at the grand opening, Saturday, Aug. 17, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. The joint public and academic library is on TCC's Virginia Beach Campus, on the corner of S. Rosemont Road and Faculty Blvd. We'll have lots of fun, free events for all ages.
