If you’re attending the National Charter Schools conference from July 1-2 at the Walter Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., stop by to see us! Education specialists from the Library of Congress will be at booth #6076.
Staff will be on hand to answer your questions about teaching with primary sources from the Library of Congress and to talk about professional development opportunities. We hope to see you there.
July highlights include the origins of Independence Day and a new capital of the United States, Washington, D.C.
