Adopt Virginia's History — You can assist us!

The story of Virginia—from the time of its beginnings as a colony to the present day—is documented here at the Library of Virginia. The Adopt Virginia's History program supports our You can conservation and collection management efforts, helping the Library preserve and document our state’s collective memory. Please see the highlighted items below that are in need of adoption to guarantee their preservation.

We welcome donations to our general conservation and management fund in any amount. You can be proud of your contribution to this important cause, which is tax deductible. We will acknowledge your generous adoption or contribution of $100 or more with a certificate. When you adopt a project, your gift will be noted in our online catalog record, and you will be invited to come and see your work upon completion.

Please check back often to see which works have been adopted and to view additional items in need of adoption below!

The Adopt Virginia's History program relies on your support to fulfill its mission and programming in the preservation of our state’s history.
