Library of Congress employees gathered for a photo op to share today to welcome 14th Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden on her first official day at the institution. Posing for photos were staff from the Library’s main campus on Capitol Hill, Taylor Street Annex in Northwest D.C. (which is home to the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped), the Packard Campus for Audio Visual Conservation in Culpeper, Va., and the Fort Meade facility in Maryland.
“Library of Congress staff members are considered to be the ultimate in terms of professional librarianship,” Hayden said in an interview for the Library of Congress Magazine, LCM. “So I’m really excited about getting their input and taking advantage of their experience as we work together to chart a course to the future.”
We invite you to welcome the Librarian in the comments below!
