Like the Library of Congress and the Jefferson building, the Science & Business Reading Room has a special connection to Thomas Jefferson.
On this day in 1976, in honor of Thomas Jefferson’s birthday, President Ford signed the act that changed the Library of Congress Annex Building to the Library of Congress Thomas Jefferson Building.
His image can be found on a lunette near the ceiling (pictured at right) and his quotes are on our walls.
(Note: As noted in an earlier post, it was not until 1980 that our building acquired its current name.)
