J. G. Morrison, 8o9 Thirteenth street, N. W. The Library of Congress occupies the entire western projection of the central Capitol building. The original library was commenced in 1800, but was destroyed with the Capitol in 1814 during the war with England. It was afterwards replenished by the purchase of the library belonging to Ex-President Jefferson, by Congress, embracing about 7,000 volumes. In 1851 it contained 55,000 volumes, and by an accidental fire in that year the whole collection was destroyed, except 20,000 volumes. It was rebuilt in 1852, when $75,000 was, appropriated in one sum to replenish the collection. The new library halls, three in numberare fitted up with ornamental iron cases and iron ceilings, the whole being perfectly fireproof. The library is recruited by regular appropriations made by Congress, which average about $11,000 per annum; also by additions received by copyright, by exchanges, and from the Smithsonian Institution. The library of the Smithsonian Institution has now been deposited in the Library of Congress, where it is secured against loss by fire. This collection is especially rich in scientific works, embracing the largest assemblage of the transactions of learned societies which exists in the country. The library was also enriched by the presentation to the Government, in 1882, of the large private library of Dr. Joseph M. Toner, of Washington, numbering over 27,000 volumes, besides nearly as many pamphlets. The donor, whose public spirit is worthy of emulation, adds to the collection annually. The library of copyright books was removed here from the Patent Office in 1870, and all copyrights issued in the United States are now recorded in the books deposited in the office of the Librarian of Congress. The present number of volumes in the whole library, including law books, which are kept in a separate library room under the Supreme Court, is over 555,000, besides about 180,000 pamphlets. A new building to contain its overflowing stores of learning and to afford room for their proper arrangement has become a necessity. This collection is very rich in history, political science, jurisprudence, and in books, pamphlets, and periodicals of American publication, or relating in any way to America. At the same time the library a universal one in its range, no department of literature or science being unrepresented. The public are privileged to use the books in the library, while members of Congress and about thirty official members of the Government only can take away books. The library is open every day (Sundays excepted) during the session of Congress from 9 a. m. to the hour of adjournment. In the recess of Congress it is open between the hours of 9 a. m. and 4 p. m.
