Donations of Materials

The Library of Virginia’s incredible collection of Virginia literature, history and culture has been a work in progress since the founding of the Library in 1823.  From the very beginning we have collected books, manuscripts, maps, newspapers, broadsides, photographs, portraits, and other items that chronicle the history of the commonwealth. Many of our greatest treasures are the result of gifts from generous donors. Should you have materials you think might be appropriate for the Library’s collections, please contact the staff member listed below in order discuss a potential gift. Some gifts may qualify as tax deductible donations.
