THOMAS BALCH LIBRARY
SUMMER/FALL PROGRAMS AND EVENTS
At 4 PM on Sunday, August 19, the Friends of Thomas Balch Library will gather for their fifth annual event in support of Thomas Balch Library. The event will take place at the Thomas Birkby House in the historic district of Leesburg. The topic will be the Bicentennial of the War of 1812 when Leesburg Housed the National Archives. Guests will enjoy great food, fine wine and engaging conversation. Noted author Anthony S. Pitch will discuss the British Invasion of Washington in the summer of 1814 and relate how the precious national archives were saved from the fires that destroyed Washington. The materials were sent to Leesburg and Loudoun County and stored until they could safely be returned to Washington.
Corporate sponsors and individuals interested in supporting this event are welcome to contact the Friends for additional information and an invitation. You may send an email request to EVENTS@BalchFriends.org or leave a message at 703-737-2166. All proceeds will go toward the endowment for Thomas Balch Library.
Except the annual fundraiser held by the Friends, most programs sponsored by Thomas Balch Library are held in the downstairs meeting room and are free unless otherwise noted. Due to limited seating we recommend registering in advance by calling 703-737-7195. For updated news on events at the library, visit their website at:
