It’s International Women’s Day, so we’re recognizing the celebration with this image of Carla Hayden, the first female Librarian of Congress, testifying before the U.S. Senate Committee on Rules and Administration earlier this week. Dr. Hayden was testifying as part of annual oversight hearings. The Library, she noted, received 1.9 million on-site visitors and more than 114 million visits to the Library’s websites.
