Another Library: Photo Friday

Continuing on a theme started a few weeks ago, this week’s photo is of one of the most important libraries in the world, Library of Congress. Employing 4,000 individuals and housing 134 million items makes long cavernous tunnels like the one pictured necessary. It really is larger than life. In case you were wondering (I was), you cannot check out items from this library, and you can take your computer into the reading rooms to work, you just can’t take the computer bag in with you. Which is fine, it was worth the trip.
