The history behind the Libraries

A page from “Cristallographie” from James Smithson’s personal library, with notes in his own hand.

Huzzah! It’s National Library Week! April 12th-18th has been designated by the American Library Association as a special time to highlight the importance of libraries in America. While we like to think that every week is “library week”, we appreciate the opportunity to celebrate the amazing things that libraries do.  We’ll be sharing some fun facts and quotes about libraries in our social media outlets this week – follow along with us using the hashtag #NLW15.
