The Library of Congress in Washington D.C. turns 200 this year. Begun with fewer than 1,000 books, the library now holds 115 million items in a number of formats. "America's oldest national cultural center," the library is one of the largest repositories of recorded knowledge in the world. Established as a legislative library, it now serves as the copyright agency of the United States and the research arm of the U.S. Congress. With a staff of nearly 3,000 and an annual appropriation of more than $300 million, the library is truly a wondrous monument. Online, you'll find congressional records, committee information, legislative information and special exhibits.
