  2d Session
H. CON. RES. 269

_______________________________________________________________________

                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

Whereas the Library of Congress, America's oldest Federal cultural institution, 
        was established on April 24, 1800, and in its 200 years of existence has 
        become the largest and most inclusive library in human history;
Whereas the Library's mission is to make its resources available and useful to 
        the Congress and the American people and to sustain and preserve a 
        universal collection of knowledge and creativity;
Whereas, in furtherance of its mission, the Library has amassed an unparalleled 
        collection of 119 million items, a superb staff of ``knowledge 
        navigators'', and networks for gathering the world's knowledge for the 
        Nation's good;
Whereas the Library, the Congress, and the Nation have benefitted richly from 
        the work of thousands of talented and dedicated Library employees 
        throughout the Library's 200-year history;
Whereas the citizens of the United States have generously contributed to the 
        Library's collections through their own creativity, social and scholarly 
        discourse, donation of materials in all formats, and generous 
        philanthropic support;
Whereas the goal of the Library's bicentennial commemoration is to inspire 
        creativity in the centuries ahead and remind Americans that all 
        libraries are the cornerstones of democracy, encouraging greater use of 
        the Library of Congress and libraries everywhere;
Whereas this goal will be achieved through a variety of national, State, and 
        local projects, developed in collaboration with Members of Congress, the 
        staff of the Library of Congress, libraries and librarians throughout 
        the Nation, and the Library's James Madison Council and other 
        philanthropic supporters;
Whereas the centerpiece of the bicentennial celebration is the Local Legacies 
        Project, a joint effort of Congress and the Library of Congress to 
        document distinctive cultural traditions and historic events 
        representing local communities throughout the country at the turn of the 
        21st century; and
Whereas the bicentennial commemorative activities also include symposia, 
        exhibitions, publications, significant acquisitions, the issuance of a 
        commemorative coin and stamp, and enhanced public access to the 
        collections of the Library of Congress through the National Digital 
        Library: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That the Congress commends the Library of Congress and its employees, 
both past and present, on 200 years of service to the Congress and the 
Nation and encourages the American public to participate in activities 
to commemorate the Library's bicentennial.

            Passed the House of Representatives March 28, 2000.

            Attest:

                                                                 Clerk.
