Get It Started

Let VBPL help you get 2020 started off the right way

Let's get it started in here! It's a new year, and if you're like most, you've made resolutions, or at least thought about a change that will make 2020 the best year yet.

Your Virginia Beach Public Library is offering more than 400 free programs this month for all ages! If a new or improved career path is your goal, the Central Library is a great resource for workshops and one-on-one assistance on networking, resume-writing and job search strategies.

Is better fitness and nutrition on your list? Our digital collection of magazines, ebooks, and workout videos can keep you on track. Yoga is offered at many of the branches; there's even a class for preschoolers!

Learning a new skill is a wonderful way to start the new year. VBPL offers many classes on technology, STEM topics, gardening, and arts and crafts; you can even use your library card to access Rocket Languages, an online tool that teaches foreign languages. Check out Universal Class to take free courses on all sorts of topics and life skills.

New this year for our book lovers, VBPL is inviting adults to hit the road for a yearlong adult reading program: Reading Road Trip! Win prizes and earn badges for playing along with 'Roadside Attractions' and 'Pit Stops'. And in addition to the Teen Advisory Board, your younger child can now participate in the new Tween version for kids in grades 3-5.

Whatever your goal is for 2020, VBPL can help you reach it. Let's Get It Started!
