Librarian of Congress nominee Carla Hayden

Through an embedded video, U.S. President Barack Obama introduces his nominee for the Librarian of Congress. Carla Hayden, CEO of Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore, Maryland, describes libraries as “opportunity centers,” places where children can get the latest Harry Potter and adults are able to apply for jobs through public-access computers. She describes the Library of Congress as “America’s library,” and her vision for the Library of Congress is an inclusive place that is part of everybody’s story.
