Visiting DC on vacation? Stop by Library of Congress
| Aug 04, 2010
Summer is a great time to tell and explore favorite or new stories. Twice a day, Monday through Friday, the Young Readers Center is offering a 20-minute reading event. The Young Readers Center, which opened its doors in October 2009 to young people accompanied by an adult, provides a Library of Congress experience uniquely suited to younger readers.
The Young Readers Center is located in Room G29 on the ground floor of the Library of Congress Jefferson Building and is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. and on occasional Saturdays. If you are planning on visiting on a Saturday, call the center first at (202) 707-1950 to be sure it will be open.
The Center for the Book , which operates the Young Readers Center, was established by Congress in 1977 "to use the resources and prestige of the Library of Congress to promote books, reading, literacy and libraries."
