Support the Festival

The Library of Congress is America's gateway to knowledge and creativity. With collections and connections made new every day through the contributions of scholars, philanthropists, and everyday Americans, the Library serves as a critical resource for civic understanding and advancement.

A gift to the Library of Congress builds on these important values. Your donation will help expand collections, animate spaces, and bring the Library to life through free public programs like the National Book Festival.

And, with a donation of $50 or more, you become a member of Friends of the Library of Congress. As a Friend, you will have unique opportunities to see, experience, and learn from the Library's staff and collections first-hand.

Literacy is a critical gateway to knowledge. Make your gift today and help The National Book Festival share stories that connect and illuminate the world.
