The Library of Congress, the largest in the nation with over 30 million volumes, turned 207 yesterday. It was in 1800 that Congress allocated funds of $5,000 to start a library, which began with 740 books and three maps. If only that same amount of money could do that much now.
So how does a library such as the Library of Congress celebrate their birthday? By starting a blog, of course!
