Welcome to the Norfolk Public Library!

The mission of the library is to provide residents of all ages a welcoming environment where the library resources of space, collection, technology, and programs promote and encourage lifelong learning, recreational interests, cultural exchanges, and a sense of community. 

Come to the library to enjoy a program, find a quiet place to study or work, meet up with friends, check out materials to bring home, or try out something new in the Maker Lab. The library provides programs for adults, teens, and youth all year round. Check out unconventional items you can reserve and take home through our Stuffbrary. The library also has a variety of digital resources available like Hoopla, Overdrive, Creative Bug, Kanopy, and more! Find the online database that is best for you. Reserve a pass for a discount to many attractions on our Museum Pass page.

Looking to travel a little further? The library has passport agents on staff that can help you process your passport application. Read more and make an appointment on the Passport page.

So stop by, say hi, and explore what your library has to offer!
