Level Up

This March, team up with VBPL to take your talents and fun to the next level!


VBPL’s take home tech offers new entertainment and learning opportunities. With a VBPL card, you can bring home Sphero robots and Code-a-pillars, devices that help children learn about coding. For a new approach to family bonding time, get a PlayAway View, devices with digital stories, or a Roku streaming stick.

Our new stay and play tech option allows you to check out an Osmo kit, an award-winning, educational gaming system designed for iPads, for use during their visit at the library. Customers can also find many tech-friendly programs on our events calendar. Join us for Play with Ozobots on Mar. 9 at 2 p.m. or the Play with the Code & Go Robot Mouse Activity Kit on Mar. 17 at 3 p.m., both at the Joint-Use Library.

If the arrival of spring makes you want to elevate your gardening skills, join Virginia Beach Master Gardener Liz Maurer on Mar. 26 from 7-8 p.m. at Central Library to learn more about planting perennials. Following this workshop, take a look at our Seed Library where you’ll find a variety of seeds to take home and plant, available on a first-come, first-serve basis each month.

Interested in writing? The latest issue of “The Writer” will help you level up your skills! Access the digital library to read this magazine and a wide selection of others through Zinio. The digital library includes audiobooks, e-books, comics, newspapers, music, homework help and more.
