Center for the Book

The Center for the Book’s vision is that every Virginian will have access to books and reading and to the power that books and reading provide to shape and inform personal and civic life.

As an affiliate of the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress, the VFH Center for the Book works within a network of 50 state-center affiliates to promote books, reading, literacy, and the literary life of Virginia.
