So today I did something cool. I met Carla Hayden (I have shook the hand that has shook Obama’s hand!!!) She is the nicest and most genuine person I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. When her associate introduced me, Dr. Hayden grabbed my hand, asked me where I worked and if I was pursuing a library degree without letting go. It honestly made me melt a little. • Her speech was so interesting. However my favorite part was when Dr. Hayden talked about her hesitation to take the library of Congress position. She loves public libraries because of their ...

As the head librarian of Baltimore's public libraries during some of the toughest and most tumultuous times the city has seen, Carla Hayden not only provided a place for people to read, but also find solace and peace in areas of unrest. President Obama appointed Hayden, the first woman and African American to lead the Library of Congress. #librarianofcongress#alaac18
Being in the same room with this woman (and thousands of other librarians) was awesome! I am looking forward to reading her book when it comes out in November. Carla Hayden #librarianofcongress interviewed Mrs. Obama. Wonderful!!! #becomingmichelleobama

A number of our staff are in New Orleans for the next few days at the American Library Association Conference. Right now they're lucky to be witness to a conversation between Librarian of Congress, Carla Hayden, and former First Lady, Michelle Obama. The importance of getting lost in a book, reading as a family, and the worlds it opens up. #sbplibrary#michelleobama
One of our librarians has arrived in New Orleans for the American Library Association's Annual Conference. Les bon temps rouler! Thank you @MichelleObama and Carla Hayden for starting the conference off right! #alaac#alaac2018
What a treat and absolute honor to have Librarian of Congress Dr. Carla Hayden, as well as Congressman John Faso, visit us today. Cooperstown 1st graders enjoyed a wonderful story hour. @librarycongress @repjohnfaso #libraryofcongress#librariesofinstagram
Yesterday we had the honor of touring Dr. Carla Hayden, the 14th Librarian of Congress (@librarycongress), through the museum. We shared with her some notable items from our Research Library’s holdings––including handwritten notes from Abraham Lincoln’s autopsy. She is the first African American AND the first woman to head one of the oldest federal institutions in the nation. #libraryofcongress#librarianofcongress
Today I had the honor of meeting Carla Hayden, Ph.D., the first woman and first African American to be the Librarian of Congress. She told her staff she wants their ID cards to look like the ones I designed. 😎😁🙃 #tootingmyownhorn#carlahayden @librarycongress
Possibly the first children's book to openly tackle racial prejudice -- and it mentions Jewish history, too. Set in the Germantown area of Philadelphia, BRIGHT APRIL (1946) may feel a bit didactic and old-fashioned, but its heroine, 9-year-old April Bright, is as thoughtful and hopeful as any girl you know today. This short illustrated novel by Marguerite de Angeli (winner of the Newbery for THE DOOR IN THE WALL) was Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden's favorite childhood book. #margueritedeangeli#brightapril
