Gaining Entry to LC’s Main Reading Room


There are few booklovers who wouldn’t find absolutely thrilling – and certainly worth the trouble to arrange – the experience of sitting down in the Library of Congress’ Main Reading Room, even if it means inventing up a bit of research (or faux research) to justify doing so.

True, any casual visitor to the Libary of Congress can peer down into the awe-inspiring Reading Room from a glass-walled public gallery far above the room, but that’s different than actually sitting down for a spell at one of the Reading Room desks.

At Book Riot, Becky Cole tells you how to actually get in there next time you visit Washington, DC.

And, speaking of visits to DC, Rachel Manwill – also at Book Riot – previously posted a booklover’s guide to that city.
