Oceanfront Area Library Opens March 7 for Drive-up Service Only

​Virginia Beach Public Library's (VBPL) Oceanfront branch will open for drive-up service on Monday, March 7, while the rest of the building remains closed for renovations. While construction delays have prolonged the project, the branch is expected to open fully later this spring.

Customers will be able to pick up holds from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Other drive-up services include materials return and account services.

About the Renovations

The Oceanfront Area Library renovation is part of VBPL's second phase of a $5.8 million Capital Improvement Program (CIP) to renovate eight of 10 library locations. All libraries except the Wahab Public Law Library (updated in 2018) and the TCC/City Joint-Use Library (built in 2013) have been or will be updated.

The Great Neck Area Library is expected to close this summer to prepare for renovations. Updates were completed at Princess Anne, Bayside, Kempsville and Central Libraries in 2019, at Pungo-Blackwater in 2020, and at Windsor Woods in 2021.
