Madison has a connection to the Library of Congress! The brand new Librarian of Congress, Dr. Carla Hayden, was one of my professors at The University of Pittsburgh. In fact, she was my FAVORITE professor since she taught a class about creating good spaces and selecting great books for teenagers. When I first heard the news about Dr. Hayden. I was amazed. I had always imagined the person with that title as a fusty old guy, and Dr. Hayden is so seriously smart and COOL. Click here to learn about our new national head honcho librarian. Here's some general info about the Library of Congress for the social studies/government folks.
