Virginia Room Digital Collection

Welcome!

The Virginia Room Digital Collection includes photographs, oral histories, books, pamphlets and finding aids to items in the Virginia Room. Continue to check back for new additions.

Located in Downtown Roanoke, the Virginia Room holds the public library's non-circulating historical and genealogical research resources.  We are commited to collecting, preserving, interpreting and making available materials related to the Roanoke Valley, the Commonwealth of Virginia and to a lesser degree, materials of states closely tied to Virginia and its people by birth, immigration, migration or by boundary divisions.  We are dedicated to connecting people with the information they seek.
