Newport News Libraries Now Open

NEWPORT NEWS—Newport News Public Library (NNPL) welcomed back in-person visitors starting on Monday, April 12 when all branches officially reopened to the public. In-person services include holds, pickups, browsing and checkout, as well as use of computers, printing, copying, faxing, and scanning.

Curbside pickup is also still available with appointments available from:

  • 10am – 5pm, Monday through Thursday
  • 10am – 4pm, Friday
  • 1pm – 4pm, Saturday

Guests are asked to continue practicing COVID-19 safety protocols when in the library. Masks or face coverings are required when entering or moving about, and social distancing of six feet should be maintained at all times.

The opening of Newport News Libraries follows James City County and York County libraries, which have all been open for months. Because of rising COVID-19 cases in Hampton, Hampton Public Library will only offer curbside service by appointment, Monday through Friday, 10am – 4pm, and Saturday, 1 – 4:30pm. However, all four library locations now offer WiFi access in their parking lots.
