Background

VBCPS and VBPL's partnership to provide public library access to all VBCPS students is the latest in a long line of successful partnerships between the two in order to maximize learning opportunities and resources for Virginia Beach children. Collaborations include Summer Reading Challenge and the Fifth Grade Battle of the Books. VBPL staff members provide outreach to Title I and other school sites, bringing library programs and activities to students who might not otherwise be able to visit the library.  

The student library account partnership stems from the Urban Libraries Council’s “Leaders Library Card Challenge​,” a national effort to ensure that every child enrolled in school has access to the valuable learning resources available at public libraries.
