Give time meaning again with the 2021 “An Archives for All Seasons” monthly calendar. For just $12 you can support two great causes and organize your upcoming year with an intriguing 2021 wall calendar. “An Archives for All Seasons” features images that highlight Virginia’s rich historical and cultural traditions from nineteen archives and manuscript repositories across the state, including George Mason University’s Special Collections Research Center. It was created in honor of Virginia Archives Month (October) by the Library of Virginia, the Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference Virginia Caucus, and the Friends of the Virginia State Archives.
Profits from the calendar will benefit the Archival Workers Emergency Fund, to support archival workers experiencing financial hardship during the COVID-19 crisis, and Books Behind Bars, a volunteer organization that matches up donated books with requests from the incarcerated population of Virginia. The calendars are available exclusively at the Virginia Shop.
