About Us

Virginia Beach Public Library brings people together and provides equitable and convenient access to resources, educational experiences and opportunities to enrich lives. 

It’s a place where young children acquire skills to help them succeed in school. It’s where citizens turn to find unbiased information to research i​ssues of the day…to access emerging technologies…find resources for job-seeking…connections with other people. It’s where new chapters begin.

For more than a century, libraries have been the place where people go to learn, adapt, and flourish in an increasingly complex world. With expert staff and a focus on current and future needs of our citizens, Virginia Beach Public Library proudly continues that tradition.
