Whatever your plans are this summer, Prince William Public Libraries can make it even more fun (and maybe even a little educational!). It doesn’t matter if you’re planning to stay at home or take a road trip to explore beyond Prince William County. Here are some great materials and resources for the entire family to enjoy!

Mobile Wi-Fi Hotspots: Get free internet wherever you are! Hotspots are loaned out for a three-week period. Patrons must be at least 18 years of age and have their library card and picture ID with them when checking out a mobile hotspot.

Playaway Launchpads: Pre-loaded tablets with content for kids and teens and 100% secure with no need for Wi-Fi.

I Love Virginia Nature Backpacks: These backpacks include a parking pass for free parking and entrance to all Virginia State Parks, animal and plant guidebooks, activities for kids, and more.

Summer Reading Program: There’s still time to sign up! From June 14 to Aug. 15, visit one of the libraries to sign up or use the Beanstack Tracker app on your smartphone.

If you’re truly embracing the “staycation,” be sure to check out our Digital Library:

Just added to the Digital Library: Kanopy! Kanopy is a video streaming solution offering access to more than 30,000 documentaries, movies, and more.

RBdigital magazines are now available on OverDrive and the Libby App. All your favorite magazines – more than 2,500 titles – are now available for you to read digitally on your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Lynda.com is now LinkedIn Learning! Lynda.com’s courses and instructors are still available to you for free through LinkedIn Learning.

This summer, explore thousands of online and digital resources including e-books, audiobooks, newspapers, and premium websites through our Digital Library, pwcva.gov/digitallibrary, or visit one of the 12 libraries for even more summer fun.
