Washington, D.C. – Each year, the FCC Library proudly celebrates National Library Week with
a staff Open House. This year, in partnership with the FCC Technology Experience Center, the
FCC Library’s Open House will include a digital showcase celebration. This digital showcase
recognizes that local, state, federal, and academic libraries offering electronic or digital content
have become 24/7 cyberspace branch libraries accessed by a wide array of personal use devices.
The event will take place on Wednesday, April 11, 2012.
The FCC Technology Experience Center, located within the FCC Library, is a communications
technology laboratory where FCC staff and visitors have hands-on opportunities to preview
communications content and devices. In recognition of National Library Week, there will be
library-specific experiences for accessing content, using devices, and reviewing application
solutions. In addition, there will be an electronic compilation of library websites dedicated to
providing free access to local, state, and federal electronic content.
Manufacturers and vendors are invited to participate in this event. Of particular interest are
smart phones, eBook readers, tablets, technology kiosks and library-specific application
solutions. For consideration and further information contact Lisa Leyser, FCC Library Director,

or 202.418.0450 no later than April 2, 2012.
