Virginia Beach Public Librry's (VBPL) Windsor Woods Area Library reopens today following five months of renovations. Updates include a new study room, refreshed teen area, new furniture, new storage room and loading dock, and a new roof for the staff entrance.
The branch is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Customers are asked to limit visits to one hour to allow for proper social distancing and ensure that as many residents as possible can access the library. Masks are required for those who are unvaccinated against COVID-19.
The Windsor Woods renovation is part of VBPL's second phase of a $5.8 million Capital Improvement Program (CIP) to renovate eight of its 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 Oceanfront Area Library is expected to close later this month to prepare for renovations to begin this summer. Renovations at the Great Neck branch are expected to begin later in 2021. Updates were completed at Princess Anne, Bayside, Kempsville and Central Libraries in 2019, and at Pungo-Blackwater in 2020.
