Virtual Visit: Tuesdays at the Library
Join us on Tuesdays at 1:00 PM for a peek at the Library’s fascinating collections through a five-minute Facebook Live video. Each week a Library staff member will share and discuss a favorite item from our archives. A post-event Q&A session will follow each video, with questions answered within the comments. The videos remain available for viewing on the Library’s Facebook page after the live events.
On May 26, join senior manuscript, map, and rare book librarian Audrey McElhinney as she shares an 1805 insurance document for George Washington's Mount Vernon in Fairfax County from the records of the Mutual Assurance Society of Virginia. The oldest business still in operation within the commonwealth, the company was incorporated in 1794 by a special act of the Virginia General Assembly.
