A specially-designed 18-wheel truck brought treasures and information from the Library of Congress into cities and towns across America. Beginning in September 2010, the "Gateway to Knowledge" rolling exhibition visited sites in states across the Midwest, South, and Northeast through September 2011, concluding its tour where it began, at the Library of Congress National Book Festival. The truck, staffed and driven by two docents well-versed in the Library and its collections, parked at various universities, libraries, community centers and other public venues.
