CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The Library of Virginia’s LVA On the Go will pay a visit to Nelson Memorial Library from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Aug. 12.

Activities will include presentations on genealogy resources by the Nelson County Historical Society and the Library of Virginia, as well as children’s genealogy activities and an introduction to scanning services by Nelson Library staff.

“JMRL is delighted that Nelson Memorial Library is included as one of LVA On the Go’s stops this summer,” said Library Director David Plunkett. “It’s a fun way to introduce the community to the rich resources that the Library of Virginia makes available to all citizens.”

LVA On the Go is a state-of-the-art vehicle that tours the Commonwealth to enhance awareness of the Library of Virginia’s collections and resources, strengthen ties to local organizations, capture stories and histories from community members, and provide a memorable and fun experience. It part of the celebration for LVA’s 200th year.

“As we approach our third century, it’s important that we offer additional ways for individuals of all ages who may not ever have the opportunity to visit us in Richmond to learn about our rich and diverse collections and programs and share their stories,” said Librarian of Virginia Sandra Treadway. “Our custom-built vehicle presents opportunities to connect to a wider audience across the state.”

The Library of Virginia is dedicated to the preservation of the state's history and culture. The LVA's collections contain more than 130 million items documenting the lives of famous Virginians and ordinary people.
