Let Sparks Fly!

Find your perfect match...at the library.

It's February and love is in the air all month long! VBPL's extensive digital library is available 24/7 so you can download or stream those swoon-worthy love songs, a dreamy romance novel and your favorite rom-com movie titles. book page rolls into the heart in the library bookshelf  300dpi.jpg

For the younger kids, VBPL is offering Valentine's Day Story and Craft programs, and older kids in third through fifth grade can participate in a Cookie Challenge and make vintage valentines using cursive writing and old-fashioned poetry. Find information on the programs here.  

There's often no stronger bond than that of family, and researching family ancestry is certainly a wildly popular pastime. The Meyera E. Oberndorf Central Library has a comprehensive local history and genealogy collection featuring 13,700 items including books, microforms, digital materials and periodicals. You'll find how-to books, local histories for Virginia and parts of North Carolina, and genealogical sources for many other states.

Do you love where you live? Of course! Virginia Beach and its surrounding areas are full of diverse communities, picturesque landscapes and captivating history. At VBPL, you'll love our Local History Digital Archives containing thousands of postcards, photographs, local maps, family papers, yearbooks and more. There's something sure to spark the interest of longtime Virginia Beach residents and area newcomers as well.

Speaking of spark (plugs)… library users can access the Chilton Library, a helpful tool to guide you through vehicle maintenance and repairs, including a labor estimating tool, photographs and illustrations. Sweet!

So, let those sparks fly in February and visit VBPL- either online or at any of the 10 area branches. You're sure to find something to love!
