How is funding for the libraries determined?

Libraries receive funding in 2 ways, primarily funds are provided by the City of Chesapeake. However, funds are also provided by the Library of Virginia through State Aid. These funds are earmarked for the library’s collection. The library also receives donations from the Friends of the Library and the Chesapeake Public Library Foundation to provide fun and engaging activities, like summer reading.
