Chronicling America OFFLINE This Weekend



It's getting late; too late to post my Friday Finds in Newspapers, especially since I have an early beginning to my long day tomorrow.

I did want to post this notice that the Library of Congress sent out: all their websites, including Chronicling America, will be OFFLINE this weekend, while the Architect of the Library is performing maintenance.

They plan to be back online the evening of Sunday, August 30th.
