Everyone was so busy with campaigning and reading about the election that this mid-September news may have escaped us. Carla Hayden was sworn in as the first female librarian of Congress, an institution and position which dates back to the origin of the nation. She is also the first African-American in the role and one of only 14 people to ever hold the position.
The U.S Senate confirmed Hayden as librarian of Congress in mid-July of this year.
