The 2020 Library of Congress National Book Festival will be held online this year on September 25th-27th, giving us the opportunity to interact with patrons across the world who may not otherwise be able to attend an in-person Book Festival. So, while we may not be able to see you in person this year, you can stop by the Law Library’s virtual booth, where we will host a variety of videos on U.S. and foreign and comparative law, as well as some highlights from our Rare Book Collection. We will also be giving away “Library of Congress Law Library: An Illustrated Guide” as a PDF. This book explores the Rare Book Collection of the Law Library, from medieval manuscripts to items with a special connection to founders of the United States.
You can also chat with us via Ask A Librarian Live. On September 26th and 27th, from 9am-5pm, Ann Hemmens and Emily Carr will be available to answer your legal reference questions and any other questions you have about the Law Library’s collections and services. We hope to see you there!
