On this day 212 years ago the Library of Congress was established. This library/archive is the nation’s greatest treasure trove of American History. And did you know that our library supplies copies of all the Colorado state documents to the Library of Congress? (State documents from all 50 states are housed there). The Library of Congress has a great deal of information online, so if you’re researching Colorado history or government, they are a fantastic source for documents, photos, and much more.
Here’s to (at least!) 212 more years of the Library of Congress. I wonder what folks in the year 2224 will be researching?
