This week the American Library Association annual conference takes place here in DC. There are many events taking place during the conference (June 24-29) and the Library of Congress has events scheduled as well.
We here in the Science & Business Reading Room (5th floor, Adams Building) will be hosting an open house on Friday, June 25th from 2 – 5pm and hope that you will stop by and see us. There will be a variety of displays and reference staff will be on hand to answer questions.
Many of the other reading rooms here at the Library will be hosting open houses for ALA attendees as well on Friday, June 25th from 2 – 5pm. An “after hours” open house will take place in the Main Reading Room in the Thomas Jefferson building from 5 – 7pm.
Special tours have been planned. (Space is limited and registration is required.)
The Library’s exhibit booth at the conference (#3751) will have a variety of presentations beginning with a webcast of Modern Marvels: The Library of Congress presented by the History Channel on Friday, June 25th from 5:30-7:30pm. See the Exhibit Booth Presentation Schedule for more information.
