Join us at the Library on Thursday, June 9 at 6 PM for a talk by historian and author Warren Eugene Milteer Jr. on his new book, Beyond Slavery’s Shadow: Free People of Color in the South. This talk complements the Library’s exhibition Your Humble Petitioner.
Contributions to the Library support public programs, create inspiring exhibitions, and preserve Virginia's invaluable history. Members receive invitations to special events, discounts at the Virginia Shop, a print subscription to Broadside, and the knowledge that your support makes the Library's work possible.
The Petersburg Garden Club, Petersburg Public Library, and Library of Virginia present an exhibition celebrating the work of the renowned landscape architect Charles F. Gillette, whose name was synonymous with the best landscape design in the upper South from the 1920s through the 1960s.
