The remodeling of the Slover Library in downtown Norfolk is amazing, There are rooms to use, multi-media tools at your fingertips and everything else you'd expect at a library. And the mix of old and new architecture is just beautiful.

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.
