New Librarian of Congress - Another Step in the Journey

The Senate Rules Committee has passed the nomination of Carla Hayden to the Senate. It is now up to us. If the Senate approves her nomination, Carla Hayden will become the first female Librarian of Congress, the first African American Librarian of Congress, and only the SECOND librarian Librarian of Congress. I would personally like to encourage you to contact our senators and encourage them to approve this nomination. Can you believe that since 1802, there has only been one Librarian of Congress who actually had a library degree? Let's change that this year!
