High Plains Library

Meet Carla Hayden, the Librarian of Congress

“Ambitious doesn’t begin to describe Carla Hayden’s plan to make the Library of Congress’ collection available to the world. Audacious may be closer to it.

Hayden, the 14th person to steward the Library, wants to ‘throw open the treasure chest’ by digitizing its vast collection and making it accessible online. The five-year plan’s understated name — Enriching the Library Experience — doesn’t capture its scope. Hayden wants people to engage with everything from the letters of Abraham Lincoln to early-edition Batman comics.”
