The Library of Congress was established on April 24, 1800, when President John Adams signed an Act of Congress providing both the location of Washington DC and "for the purchase of such books as may be necessary for the use of Congress."
In 1897, the library moved to its own building designed by architects John L. Smithmeyer and Paul J. Pelz.
