Granddaughter and I spent a lot of time exploring this multi-level library in the heart of Norfolk. Very old building that has annexed the buildings around it. Great place for some lunch and quiet time.

The way a library should be! Plenty of books (and quiet areas) but so much more. I was fascinated by the 3D printers and there is plenty of history with interactive monitors. Unique.

A complex old and modern building, very friendly for researchers and readers. Quiet rooms for small meeting and internet infrastructure. There is also room for exhibitions.

A don't-miss in you're in Norfolk. The old has been redone to the nines and attached to a new addition that's simply breathtaking. The place is free to the public(!) and so clean you do surgeries on the floors. Just fantastic.

One of the jewels of the downtown redevelopment. Multiple floors with lots to do on every floor. And there are often different activities available for everyone. Tip: be sure to see the archive section with the interactive history screens.

Great location next to the Hilton. Each floor is well laid out with a digital map to guide you to what you need. All team members were very helpful.
