Mark your calendars for Friday, August 2, 2019 for the Mid-Atlantic Summer 2019 meeting! Our host is the Winterthur Museum, Garden, and Library in Winterthur, Delaware. The full roster of activities and tour options for members is still being coordinated, so details and registration will be posted shortly to the Upcoming Meetings page. The current schedule includes a tour of the Library and the Library Conservation Lab, plus optional (fee-based) tours of the House and Gardens. The Business Meeting will take place in the late morning or early afternoon to accommodate same-day travel.
The Winterthur is located in scenic Brandywine Valley, about 6 miles northwest of Wilmington, DE. The region is also home to several other libraries and museums, including Longwood Gardens, the Hagley Museum and Library, and the Delaware Art Museum.
Many thanks to Kathy Woodrell (Library of Congress) and Emily Guthrie (Winterthur) for helping arrange the event.

Organizing a successful meeting between chapters across so many states is a true collaborative effort.

The conference hotel is the Linden Row Inn, located in the Monroe Ward district of downtown Richmond. Reserve your room by October 15 using the code ARLIS18 to receive our group rate of $129/night.
To help you plan your travel in advance, Southeast chapter meetings usually start informally on Thursday evenings with dinner, and maybe a walking tour. Saturdays are usually reserved for presentations or additional tours, and tend to wrap up mid-afternoon. If you’re planning to travel by Amtrak, there are two daily trains in and out of Richmond and round-trip travel is currently $56 out of Washington, D.C. Union Station.
As more details are finalized, they will be posted to this page.
