Fast Forawrd to 21st Century

Today, the Library of Congress is the largest library in the world, with millions of books, recordings, photographs, newspapers, maps and manuscripts in its collections. The Library is the main research arm of the U.S. Congress and the home of the U.S. Copyright Office. It also established the Library of Congress Library Classification System which is used by academic libraries throughout the world, including Okanagan College Library Services.

In 2008, someone estimated that if you wanted to read every book in the Library of Congress's collection at the rate of 2 books per day for 325 days per year, it would take you more than 27,000 years to read them all (and that doesn't include the tens of thousands of new books added annually).
