Description

Dr. Carla Hayden became the 14th Librarian of Congress in 2016. Nominated by President Barack Obama, Carla is the first woman and the first African American to lead the national library.

Carla runs the largest library in the world! She has set out to make its treasures more accessible, so you can see a portrait of a young Harriet Tubman or read Frederick Douglas' journal entries onlines. Carla is also in charge of the US Copyright Office and selects the Poet Laureate, and Gershwin Prize.

Carla describes how libraries serve as sanctuaries during national crises, and how she and her colleagues are navigating the COVID-19 pandemic.
