CCPL has designed Learning Pods to support customers/groups seeking a space for Virtual Learning, Independent Studying, Team Assignments, Adult Literacy, and Teleworking. To support Chesterfield County Public Schools, groups who are using the space for virtual learning will have priority registration privileges.
