Choose Adventure

Make the most of summer with Virginia Beach Public Library.Book-Sky-Adventure_325x200.jpg

No matter where you find yourself this sizzling season, a good adventure book will launch you to an exotic locale. Voyage “Into the Wild” with author Jon Krakauer, or sail to “Treasure Island” with Robert Louis Stevenson. Check out a hard copy or the movie version of an adventure tale, and debate with your family whether the book or film is better.

Do your summer travels include a foreign destination? Use your library account for free access to Rocket Languages, an online service that teaches foreign languages through interactive audio. Heading outdoors? Learn about birdwatching or canoeing by taking an online Universal Class. Our digital collection also includes outdoor magazines such as Runner’s World, Field & Stream, and National Geographic Kids. Keep the songs of summer handy using your library subscription to
Hoopla, where you can listen to the Beach Boys, Bob Marley or classical pieces with warm-weather themes.

Looking for a place to beat the heat? The library is the place to experience the thrills of a superhero movie, the surprises of a magic show, and the fun of learning how to make your own ice cream. Visit for a calendar of programs.

Summer camp isn’t just for kids. Camp Evergreen offers adults the chance to make s’mores and taste-test a variety of coffee and teas. As our thoughts turn back to school, adults who haven’t earned a diploma can enroll in the career online high school program.


Thanks to your neighborhood library, there are many opportunities for fun before summer ends.
