Welcome to the Poquoson Public Library!

"Being small is no reason to be less than excellent"

Welcome to the Library. We are here to promote life-long learning by encouraging all ages in the enjoyment of reading and discovery and by delivering timely services to meet the informational, recreational, and educational needs of the community. As we step into the 21st century, libraries are playing an increasingly important role in connecting the public to the vast resources of the Internet while continuing to provide the traditional services of reading and learning that libraries always have. This site describes some of the resources and services your library provides; I hope that you enjoy your visit and find it helpful. Our goal is to provide the best possible library service for you. If you have any comments or suggestions for improvement, please let me know. It is a pleasure to serve you. I thank you for your support.
