Virginia Beach Public Libraries to Close March 8 for Staff Training

Wednesday, February 22, 2017

All Virginia Beach Public Library locations, except for the TCC/City Joint-Use Library, will be closed Wednesday, March 8, so that library staff may attend an in-service training day. The TCC/City Joint-Use Library, on the corner of South Rosemont Road and Faculty Boulevard, will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pick-up and due dates for books and materials have been adjusted so they will not occur on March 8.

While Virginia Beach Public Library buildings are closed, library cardholders may access their account information online, as well as a variety of research tools and resources, including e-books, digital audiobooks and magazines, streaming music and movies and more.

Held once every three years, the library's "All-Staff Training Day" brings in national, regional and local experts to present on professional development topics, helping staff refresh and sharpen skills and continue providing top-notch customer service to Virginia Beach residents. The day is primarily funded by the Friends of Virginia Beach Public Library.
