All of these items are free to check out with your library card, limit two at a time per card.

Finally, as you get your new year started right, keep updated on what is going at each library location. Browse the available programs on the library event calendar. During 2019, eight of the 10 library locations will be renovated starting with Bayside, which will remain open during the construction, and Kempsville, which closed for construction on Dec. 31.  While closed, VBPL is offering limited services with a "Kempsville Express Library" at the City Treasurer's office located in the Fairfield Shopping Center beginning Jan. 2.
