RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- The Virginia Historical Society is naming its new Learning Center in honor of a Richmond couple.

The Carole and Marcus Weinstein Learning Center will complement the society's permanent and temporary exhibitions.

The society says the Weinsteins have played leading roles in developing its educational programs.

The new center is part of the society's $38 million Story of Virginia Campaign. The campaign also includes using digital imaging to improve access to the society's collections, redesigning and reinstalling an 11,000-square-foot Story of Virginia exhibition, and a new series of nationally touring exhibitions.
