Library of Congress
A specially-designed 18-wheel truck will bring treasures and information from the Library of Congress into cities and towns across America beginning in September 2010.
"Gateway to Knowledge" will visit sites in Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio and Indiana in September and October. Ultimately, the rolling exhibition is expected to visit up to 60 sites in states across the Midwest and South over the next year.
The truck, which will be staffed and driven by two docents well-versed in the Library and its collections, will be parked at various universities, libraries, community centers and other public venues.
