Leesburg, VA (December 28, 2018) – Due to inclement weather, the Friends of Thomas Balch Library has rescheduled their 24th annual meeting to Sunday, January 27 in the downstairs meeting room of the library at 2 p.m. 

The meeting program will be “Oral History Series: Interview with Jim Lucier.” Foreign policy specialist, historian and journalist Dr. James P.

A Leesburg resident since 1967, Lucier is the author of The Political Writings of James Monroe, published in 2001, and is a 2012 Loudoun History Award recipient. He served on the Thomas Balch Library Advisory Commission from 1994 to 2004 and was instrumental in the renovation and expansion of the library in 2003. He has served on the Friends of the Thomas Balch Library board since 2006 and is a former chair of the Friends’ editorial board.

Following the program, members of the Friends of the Thomas Balch Library will elect the 2019 board of directors. The Thomas Balch Library is located at 208 West Market Street, Leesburg. For more information, visit
