The Seth Woodroof Account Book

In February 2024, Jones Memorial Library was honored to have The Seth Woodroof Account Book named as one of the Top 10 Endangered Artifacts in Virginia. Funding from this program will support the library’s conservation and preservation projects.

You can read more about the Virginia Association of Museums Top 10 program and see a digital reproduction of the Account Book in our online collection.

Recently Restored

Jones Memorial Library actively acquires, preserves, and stewards books, documents, artwork, and other material of enduring cultural importance. 

Pictured below are a few of the items recently restored by the Library. As items are repaired and restored, they return to our collection and are preserved under protocols that reduce further damage.  While many restored items are held in restricted access, our practice is to make preservation quality images publicly available through online access in Digital Jones.

The library has a limited budget for the conservation of items in need of repair.  Unrestricted monetary gifts to the library’s Annual Fund support conservation projects, ongoing stewardship of the collections, and related programming – thank you!
