Exploring DC: Library of Congress

This year will make five since I made the move from Atlanta, GA to the District, 

and I admittedly do not take full advantage of all the sites and sights.  So last weekend while my sister was in town, I made it a point to see a couple of the gorgeous benefits to living in DC.

I've been saying for weeks that I wanted to visit the Library of Congress, but hadn't quite made it down to see it.  I had heard stories of the beauty of the building and was not disappointed.  From the time I walked in, I was enamored by the space. And the day played nice by illuminating the inside with natural light.

There was an exhibit dedicated to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that I didn't realize was there until we arrived.  It was thorough and interesting.  I'd like to go back and walk through again, as I'm sure I missed plenty the first time around.

Apparently there is also a Rosa Parks exhibit which I didn't see mention of until I was about to leave :( And they regularly hold concerts! (Free with sign up). I loved the Library of Congress, and will absolutely be back to marvel at the building and its holdings.
