Carla Hayden Confirmed as Librarian of Congress
Hayden was most recently the chief executive of Baltimore’s Enoch Pratt Free Library, where she oversaw the library’s expansion. Under her direction, the library remained open as a safe space for the community during the tumultuous period following Freddie Gray’s death.
I will be honored to build on the legacy and accomplishments of my predecessors in this position, to be part of a continuing movement to open the treasure chest that is the Library of Congress even further, and to make it a place that can be found and used by everyone. (The Washington Post)
