Spark a Lifelong Adventure of Learning

This year, for the first time, the Library of Congress is
participating in #GivingTuesday—a global giving movement. On Tuesday, November
, we are asking you to make a gift to spark a lifelong adventure of learning. Here’s more information.

The Library of Congress is your library, your gateway to
understanding the world. There is so much to discover, not only the nation’s
memory, but the world’s—information from all corners of the earth, in more than
470 languages. With millions of items available online, you can access the
Library’s treasures from anywhere.

Save the Date to Make Your Gift!

on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized
shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the
charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
