Celebrate Our 40-Year Journey

Sunday,October 9th     2:30 to 4:30 PM

ballons2016 marks the 40th anniversary of the Poquoson Public Library. We have come a long way from our humble beginning in 1976. The library was established in a white wooden house on Odd Rd as part of the Bicentennial Celebration. It was moved in 1983 to a vacant bank building on Poquoson Ave, and again in 1997 to its current 14,000 square foot facility on City Hall Ave. To celebrate this auspicious occasion, join the Library Advisory Board, Friends of the Library, and Library staff for light refreshments, crafts, and a display of library memorabilia.
