Interested in renting the Library’s facilities for your corporate meeting or event?
This benefit is available to all corporate partners who give $500 or more. The Library’s downtown location, beautiful facility and onsite parking make it an ideal location for your next reception or meeting. Due our proximity to Capitol Square, many organizations utilize Library space during the General Assembly session as a meeting space or as a “base of operations” to visit legislators. Discounted rental rates are available for state agencies.
Are you running out of room for your old business records?
The Library of Virginia has an extensive collection of business records from some of Virginia’s oldest and most respected companies. Business records are an important part of the patchwork of documents that create a better picture of Virginia’s past. We can provide a safe, secure location for your records, and give future generations the opportunity to learn more about your company and how it impacted Virginia’s history and culture.
* The Anne Spencer Circle reward families or individuals who contribute to the $1,000 - $2,499 level in the Semper Virginia Society
