Mark Dimunation led a tour of Thomas Jefferson’s library at the Library of Congress. Congress purchased President Jefferson’s library in 1815 to replace books that had been destroyed by fire when the British burned the U.S. capitol building in 1813. Two-thirds of Jefferson’s books were destroyed in an 1851 fire. Since 1998 the Library of Congress has been re-assembling his books, and they are now on permanent exhibit. Then, The Book Guys radio program talked about the collection with Mr. Dimunation. close
