Kristin Baker's entry is featured in a traveling exhibition of 21 prize-winning photographs from the contest that is now available from the American Library Association (ALA). The exhibition opened during the ALA Midwinter meeting in Washington on Jan. 12, 2001, when this photograph was taken. A trip to Washington and visit to the Library of Congress were part of the grand prize. The photographs in the exhibition, taken by professional and amateur photographers, depict citizens of all ages using libraries. Each was a winner in the contest, which was sponsored in 1999 by ALA and the Library of Congress with underwriting from Ingram Library Services Inc. (see Information Bulletin, July 1999). The winning photos in the contest, which was a Library of Congress Bicentennial project, were displayed at ALA's annual conference in New Orleans, June 24-30, 1999.
Two copies of the traveling exhibit, which is cosponsored by ALA and the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress, are available for three-week display periods.
