Van Hollen Statement on the Nomination of Dr. Carla Hayden to Serve as Librarian of Congress
Washington, DC – Today Maryland Congressman Chris Van Hollen released the following statement on the nomination of Dr. Carla Hayden, CEO of Baltimore’s Enoch Pratt Free Library, to serve as the Librarian of Congress:
“I applaud President Obama’s nomination of Dr. Carla Hayden to serve as Librarian of Congress. As a past president of the American Library Association and current CEO of Baltimore’s Enoch Pratt Free Library, Dr. Hayden has enriched countless lives in Maryland and across the country by fighting for equal access to information for all, especially for young minds. I am confident that she will be a strong steward of the Library of Congress and serve the American people as well as she’s served her community in Baltimore.”
