LVA On the Go

The Library of Virginia is heading your way with LVA On the Go!

Our custom-made van brings some of the vast resources and staff expertise of the Library across the commonwealth. Partnering with public libraries and other organizations, our Library ambassadors help you engage with local history, family history, educational materials and more.

Events vary by location, but may include genealogy help, reference tutorials, library account registration, oral history recordings and children’s activities, as well as presentations on resources like Virginia Untold: The African American Narrative database and, which provides access to over four million newspaper pages.

Every community has a story to tell and our LVA On the Go project will recognize and celebrate local history and culture as we connect with every corner of the commonwealth.
