The Library of Congress is the largest library in the world, covering some 130 million printed items in all. Changing exhibitions highlight gems from the collection, which include a particularly rare Gutenberg bible, Thomas Jefferson's handwritten draft of the Declaration of Independence, the first draft of the Gettysburg Address and the first motion picture deposited for copyright.
