The beginning of summer is a time of celebrations: Students are celebrating the start of summer vacation. Many teachers are celebrating finally having enough time to plan for next fall. Those of us at the Library who work in education are celebrating the fourth anniversary of the Teaching with the Library of Congress blog.

We’re grateful for all the journeys of discovery that we’ve taken in the course of creating posts for this blog, and we’re grateful for all the co-authors and guest authors who’ve enriched its pages over the years. With both of those in mind, our summer content schedule, which begins this week, will focus on many of the experts who contribute to our K-12 program, as well as shining a spotlight on many of the most intriguing or engaging objects that our colleagues have discovered in the Library’s collections. We’ll also be checking in on the Library’s Summer Teacher Institutes, which will be in full swing starting in June.

We hope you’ll have a productive and–especially–relaxing summer, and we look forward to sharing some exciting new projects with you in late August.
