Law Library Reading Room: Pic of the Week

Photography by Jeanine Cali

This sign has been resident in the manager’s office in the Law Library Reading Room for many years – sitting quietly out of sight on a shelf.  Our best guess is that this sign was originally used when the Law Library was still located in the Thomas Jefferson Building, before the Law Library was moved over 30 years ago to the James Madison Memorial Building.  However, we thought it would be fun to ask our readers if they had any information about the history of this sign and its origins.
