Share this post:

This Pic of the Week is dedicated to our building’s namesake, James Madison.  The James Madison Memorial Building is the nation’s official memorial to President Madison.  Enter the front door of the Madison Building of the Library of Congress, pass through the security screening, and turn to the left.  Here you will find the James Madison Memorial Hall and this is what you’ll see:

The statue is by Walter Hancock.  A few floors below Madison sit the enormous Law Library stacks.  And one floor above is our Reading Room.
