Event description
Spend the evening in the magnificent Library of Congress Main Reading Room while exploring an array of public-domain art + design books!

About this Event

You’re invited to browse and photograph an array of public domain art, craft, and design books pulled especially for you from our closed stacks. This special evening event will feature myriad forms of art & design, including: fashion, architecture, illustration, book arts, ceramics and pottery, sewing and needle craft, with illustrations and how-to’s galore!

Take pictures! Photography and sharing is encouraged. A special treat, as photography is not allowed during regular research hours.

Staff will highlight opportunities to keep exploring Library of Congress collections -- including how to get a research card and how to get paid to dive deeper into the Library’s collections as an Innovator-in-Residence.

Don’t miss this opportunity to have the largest library in the world literally at your fingertips! Come #TouchTheBooks !
