If you can read it, hear it, see it, think it, there’s a good chance The Library of Congress has it. With a collection of over 160 million items, it’s the largest library in the world, home to historical landmarks such as the Gutenberg Bible, the original copy of the “Star Spangled Banner” and the first portrait of Abraham Lincoln. Today, we’re celebrating the library’s 217th birthday with a peek into its vast archives. Let’s dive in.

Breckenridge Public Library added 5 new photos.

It's not too late. Join us at the Wahpeton Community Center until 7:00 for "Oceans of Fun" as we celebrate Week of the Young Child!
