Despite the many changes and challenges, we want to thank the Norfolk community for their unwavering support during this time.  The library staff are eager to resume all activities and are gearing up for a fun filled Summer Reading Program!  We are also planning for indoor programming to begin again in September with creative, enriching programs that connect community members after such an isolating time.

We hope to see you again soon at the Norfolk Public Library!
