Planning for Summer Vacation? Your First Stop: The Library!
Whether you’re heading to the beach, the mountains, or just staying close to home this summer,
Prince William Public Libraries (PWPL) has fun programs, resources, and more to help you enjoy your summer.
PWPL’s Digital Library has audiobooks, e-books, music, movies and more: all available on your devices, all free with your PWPL library card. Check out a novel to read on the beach or prepare for your destination using resources such as AtoZ the USA that offers unmatched coverage of the American people, history, economy, geography, symbols, culture, and society.
Before you get on the road, come by any of our libraries and pick up a Mobile Wi-Fi Hotspot to have free Wi-Fi access from anywhere. Call the library or search “hotspot” in the online catalog to reserve a hotspot. Playaway Launchpad Tablets are another resource that can make your travels more fun and easier going. The tablets are pre-loaded with fun, educational activities for kids, and they don’t require Wi-Fi, making them perfect for long (or short!) car rides.
If you are planning to explore Virginia, PWPL offers I Love Virginia State Parks Backpacks. These backpacks include guidebooks of animals and plants local to Virginia, a magnifying glass and net, and – best of all – a parking pass that gives you free access to all Virginia State Parks.
And if you are staying at home, explore “Oceans of Possibilities” during PWPL’s Summer Reading, June 13–August 14, and attend In-Person and Virtual Programs. With more than 150 programs to choose from, there’s something for everyone. PWPL is bringing back some favorites like The Butterfly Guy and Dinoman Dinosaur Show for kids, Laser Tag for teens, and Master Gardeners for adults.
This summer, there are as many stories, adventures, and “Oceans of Possibilities” as there are drops of water in the sea waiting for you at Prince William Public Libraries! Get started by visiting any of our 11 open libraries or pwcva.gov/library.
