Materials are selected to expand our resources in areas such as Virginia history and culture, southern history, and genealogy, and to complement our archival, manuscript, and special collections. We acquire scholarly works that place Virginia within the context of the wider world, and collect a variety of publications that showcase the commonwealth's literary and cultural life, both historically and in the present. Some items circulate outside the Library building and may be borrowed with a Library of Virginia borrower's card or via interlibrary loan.
The Library of Virginia's Exhibitions program is an access point to Virginia history and culture for tens of thousands of visitors each year. Each exhibition is designed to highlight a particular aspect of our shared culture. They provide an engaging and educational format, not only to showcase items we hold in trust for the people of Virginia, but also to encourage visitors to use our collection to answer questions of their own. The program supports the Library’s mission to preserve Virginia’s rich legacy by making the collections accessible to the public through the exploration of topics related to Virginia culture and history. Based on the Library’s unparalleled resources, exhibitions enhances the Library’s educational mission by offering new insights into Virginia history to a broad audience and to the commonwealth’s K-12 students.
