The library specializes in collecting Washingtoniana, and does not have many items or collections related directly to the history of the atmospheric sciences.

Relevant holdings include Andrew Burnaby, Travels through the Middle Settlements in North America, in the Years 1759 and 1760 (London, 1775), which contains a "Diary of the Weather" from January to December 1760, transmitted from Williamsburg, Virginia, by Francis Fauquier. The library also contains the Samuel Solomon Collection (25 boxes of material). Solomon was a prominent figure in aviation in the Washington area.
