Early Literacy Outreach

VBPL brings the library to young children and their caregivers throughout, primarily through outreach visits to area preschools. Our staff presents skill-based storytimes and teacher and parent trainings at school sites and other City locations. Partner preschools may hold  VBPL institutional library cards so we can provide library books for their classrooms, along with other curriculum materials. To discuss partnership opportunities, contact your nearest branch or the Early Literacy Outreach office at (757) 385-0193 or  

Institute Cards

VBPL institute cards are available for schools and childcare centers (both public and private) in Virginia Beach. Visit any VBPL branch or contact to learn more and sign up for your school's card.

School Partnerships

Virginia Beach Public Library highly values its relationships with area schools. As a partner in education, VBPL offers enrichment opportunities for Virginia Beach students, educators, and their families. Throughout the year, we work closely with schools to share information, resources and engaging programming. Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) and Virginia Beach Public Library (VBPL) have also partnered to provide year-round digital public library access to all K to 12 students.  
Contact your nearest branch to discuss these collaboration opportunities, or send an email to to find out more.
