Hampton Public Libraries Are Now Open

Sign up here for our free newsletter that tells you about the newest stories, three mornings each week.

As of Monday, April 19, all Hampton Public Libraries—including the main branch on Victoria Boulevard and the Northampton, Phoebus, and Willow Oaks branches—will now be open on the weekdays from 10am – 4pm, and on Saturdays from 1 – 5pm.

In an effort to enforce social distancing guidelines, patrons are limited to one hour of visitation. Face masks are required at all times while in the branches and staff members will do temperature checks as visitors come in. Curbside pickup will continue to be available.

Other facility openings include Hampton’s senior center on Kecoughtan Road and four community centers—North Phoebus, Northampton, Westhampton, and Fort Monroe—which are all expected to open May 3.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
