For those of you who, like me, just can’t get enough of the Library of Congress, we will be prominently featured before a national television audience next week.
ABC’s “Good Morning America” will be originating its coverage of the Inauguration not only on Jan. 20, but also on Jan. 19 (which serendipitously is Martin Luther King Jr. Day).
Monday they will broadcast from 7 to 9 a.m. EST, and from 7 to 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday. We’re not just a pretty backdrop for news coverage of this historic moment — they’ll also be telling some interesting stories about the Library, our remarkable collections, and what we do here.
A new twist is a project by the Library’s American Folklife Center to collect recordings and orations related to this year’s inauguration. So fire up those video cameras and audio recorders!
