Learn three great new ways to use your Virginia Beach             Public Library (VBPL) card without leaving the comfort of home.

Get Help With Homework:

It’s 6 p.m. on a Sunday night. Your kid needs help with his homework. You sit down to review the assignment and suddenly realize you are not smarter than a fifth grader. Where can you turn for help on researching the properties of subatomic particles at this hour on a weekend? VBPL has you covered. “Homework Help” is accessible online 24/7 through the Library’s website, VBgov.com/libraries.  Homework help features credible information sources on a wide variety of subjects for students in elementary through high shool.

Borrow E-Books and  Audiobooks:

Amazon recently announced that it now sells more Kindle books than hardcover and paperback combined. Keeping up with this change in reading trends, VBPL customers can borrow digital books. Your library has more than 11,000 e-book titles that can be read on multiple devices including the Nook, iPad and as of Sept. 21, the Kindle as well. The library also offers nearly 5,000 downloadable   audio books, also available for a variety of devices. Both popular and classic titles are free to library card holders via VBPL’seBooks and audiobooks page.

Download free tunes:

Current “Billboard” toppers, 80s pop hits, classical, jazz, country – VBPL has them all available for download from VBgov.com/libraries. Select up to three digital songs per week. They don’t expire and are yours to keep, free of charge. The songs can be played on your computer or transferred to an MP3 player. Visit the library’s music page for more information. All you need is your Virginia Beach library card!
