We decided to follow the lead of our Law Library colleagues at In Custodia Legis with a Picture of the Week series. In this series we will show you interesting things we see in and around the Library of Congress John Adams Building.
With that said, our first photo features one of the John Adams Building owls that greets vistors as they walk through the main door of the Science and Business Reading Room. This owl and its twin are perched atop a grille that frames the main door of the Science and Business Reading Room.
We were happy to learn that our owl is the Library of Congress Ornament for 2010. You can purchase this ornament from the Library’s Gift Shop.
