Curbside Pickup

The library will begin providing curbside pickup on Monday May 11th. Items can be placed on hold by logging into your account on the website or by calling 757-868-3060. Patrons will be called once their holds have been filled and will receive instructions for curbside pickup. Curbside service will be provided Monday through Friday 10:30am to 4:30pm.

For home bound residents we have partnered with the Friends of the Library and with the Kiwanis Club of Poquoson to provide a delivery service through June 12 for those who cannot leave their homes. Patrons wishing to receive delivery should alert staff when they receive a call that their holds are available. We will then schedule delivery based on the availability of the volunteers.

If you need assistance or have questions, please call the library Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm.

Library Cards

The Poquoson Public Library is temporarily issuing librarybooks cards over the phone so that citizens can have access to online resources including ebooks and e-audio books while our facility is closed to the public. We are also renewing expired library cards and can help navigate any of our digital resources. Please call 757-868-3060 for assistance.

 

Updated: Library Closed

Consistent with Governor Northam’s Executive Order 61, and in consultation with our surrounding jurisdictions, the City of Poquoson will continue to keep its facilities closed to the public through the Safer Home Order currently set to expire at 11:59 p.m., Wednesday, June 10th.

We are taking library card applications by phone for the use of our digital resources, including ebooks and e-audiobooks from Overdrive and RB Digital and streaming movies and TV shows via RB Digital. Give us a call if you need assistance with any of our online resources. Library staff will be available M-F 9-5 via the phone: 868-3060 and through email: library@poquoson-va.gov. Our book drop will remain open. Overdue fines will be waived during this period. All items currently out have a new due date of June 15th.

These measures are being enacted out of an abundance of caution to protect our employees and citizens in an effort to avoid the spread of COVID-19. In the coming days please refer to the City Website and community television channels for additional information.
