Educational Adventure: Discover Books and their Role in Shaping America

Enhance your knowledge and literary skills at the Library of Congress (LOC), Books that Shaped America exhibit .  The exhibit, which opened on June 25, 2012, displays books that have played a strong role in shaping America. From Benjamin Franklin’s, “Experiments and Observations on Electricity” (1751) to César Chávez, "The Words of César Chávez" (2002), the exhibit will provide an opportunity to see how we have evolved and to gain an appreciation of how each book played a role in American life. 

While each of these books has played an important role in our country, they are ‘by no means the only ones’ to have played a role in shaping America.  For more information on the exhibit and to learn how the book selections were determined, please visit the LOC website.
The exhibit is open June 25 – September 29, 2012, Monday-Saturday, 8am-4:30pm.  The exhibit is located in the LOC Thomas Jefferson Building, Southwest Gallery-2nd floor., 10 First Street, SE, Washington, DC.  If you are unable to explore the display in person, an online version is also available. 
Reading is a great way to enhance your critical thinking and writing skills.  If you are researching resources to improve your academic success, please contact your ELI Student Success Coach at 703.323.5076 or
