Sonal 712A2176Greetings!

The start of a new year always brings opportunities and a fresh start. At Norfolk Public Library (NPL), we’re doing just that!

We’re kicking off 2017 with a branding campaign called “It’s My NPL” that will provide consistent messaging across all of our branches and programming. It’s important to us that we deliver uniformities in our communications to you, our patrons. The campaign will highlight the uniqueness of each branch location while providing an overall theme to promote unity within the system.

But, even more importantly, this campaign needs YOU! We want to hear what it is that makes NPL yours. From Babygarten and Toddler Time to Teen Tech Week and PixelFest. From the Sargeant Memorial Collection and genealogy to book clubs and eResources. NPL truly has something for everyone. So, what is your “It’s My NPL” moment? We encourage you to take photos, write social media posts, upload videos and more while using #itsmyNPL.

This winter and spring, we’ll provide plenty of opportunities to explore other ways to make it your NPL. We will continue our TREK for Civility in January, focusing on tolerance, respect, empathy and kindness. We will offer tips to gain control over your finances during Money Smart Week in April. Celebrations will take place for Women’s History Month in March and National Poetry Month in April. PixelFest will return to Slover Library, too!

We’re looking forward to a great year! Be sure to stay current on all of the great things taking place at NPL by visiting our website often. Don’t forget to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and use #itsmyNPL!

See you at the Library!
