In the year 2000, The Library of Congress turned 200 years old. The oldest institution in America, this library consists of three main buildings in Washington DC, and an additional conservation center in Virginia. This historic institution is managed by the Librarian of Congress, a prestigious position that has only been held by 14 individuals. Currently, the role is occupied by Carla Hayden, who is both the first African American and the first woman to hold the position.
