Transparency – Pic of the Week

Share this post:

LLC front doors BEFORE
The front doors to the Law Library of Congress offices, as they had been since the James Madison Building was constructed.

We’ve had an update to the Law Library of Congress physical spaces.  The front doors to our main office were recently replaced with glass doors.  We often talk about transparency in government, and the doors are our small symbolic contribution to making our inner workings “see-through.”


LLC front doors AFTER
The Law Library of Congress front office doors are now transparent.

The glass also lets visitors see into the space as they approach our offices…and keep them from mistaking it for the Reading Room!


  1. …yes, the after photo is much more welcoming…
