Library of Congress ‘travels’ to Dover.

The Library’s Gateway to Knowledge traveling exhibition will set up outside Legislative Hall Friday and Saturday. The exhibit offers museum-style displays outlining the history of the library, including Thomas Jefferson’s efforts to re-establish the facility after the U.S. Capitol was burned in 1814.

 

The exhibit is free and open to the public from 10 am to 6 pm.
