Library of Congress

The Library of Congress in Washington DC is not only America’s official National Library but is also one of the country’s oldest cultural institutions. Founded in 1800, this world-renowned National Library was located in the U.S. Capitol Building for most of the 19th century. After the Civil War the Library entered a period of expansion and now extends to three separate buildings in Washington DC, making it the world’s largest National Library. Of the more than 32 million books on file at the Library include highlights such as an original copy of the U.S. Constitution and a perfect vellum copy of the Gutenberg Bible.
