Help Us


Do you have photographs, playbills, fliers, posters, postcards, funeral bulletins, school collections and papers of local interest? Don’t toss them away! The Virginia Beach’s Meyera E. Oberndorf Central Library staff is hard at work digitizing both the collections we already own, and items lent to us by local collectors. Check out the Library's Digital Archives and Digital Books collection to see what we have already posted.

If you have items you would like to donate (they are tax deductible) or a precious item you are willing to loan for digitization, please contact Mary Lovell Swetnam at (757) 385-0122.

City Employee Photo Identification

The Library has a collection of old pictures of city employees.  We need your help to identify the people, places and things in these pictures.  If you are a long time city employee, resident or retiree with an eye for details, please contact Mary Lovell Swetnam at (757) 385-0122.
