A librarian’s tale

Posted on Saturday, May 20th, 2006.


When Connie Carter first came to work at the Library of Congress in 1965, librarians wore white gloves. Although much has changed since then, Connie’s love for the institution has endured. Connie hopes to continue working as a reference librarian until 2020 and plans to come back for a StoryCorps interview to celebrate her retirement then! In fact, Connie has already returned to our StoryBooth: She surprised facilitators Justina Mejias and Nadja Middleton with a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies. Thanks Connie!

  • Aunt Connie is an amazing addition to the Library, Washington DC and our family. Thomas Jefferson would be very pleased to know she is minding his books!
