The page has turned on the Library of Congress’ 2015 National Book Festival, and JLW volunteers were an important factor in the festival’s success. 400 enthusiastic volunteers contributed more than 2,000 hours of service on Saturday, Sept. 5. This year marked the 15th National Book Festival and the 13th year the JLW supported the event by providing volunteers. This year also represented the 200th anniversary of the Library of Congress’ acquisition of Thomas Jefferson’s library, and fittingly, the theme of the festival was “I Cannot Live without Books,” a quote from Jefferson.
