The Library of Congress is bringing the feeling of spring to Capitol Hill with a display that explores the history of the beloved Japanese cherry blossoms and the living history of the National Cherry Blossom Festival through archival objects, photographs and art.

There will be an opportunity to learn about the weather, seasons, gardens and botany from the Library’s general and special collections. Commemorating the new spring season, the Library will host “Weather Day at LOC” with NBC 4 Washington.

Storm Team 4 meteorologist Sheena Parveen will present an interactive discussion about weather and seasons, which will include a demonstration with a green screen and opportunities for guest to become weather forecasters. The discussion will take place on Friday, April 6, 2018 at 11:30am in the Thomas Jefferson Building. A brief meet and greet will take place after the presentation concludes. Tickets are not required for this talk; however, guests will be seated on a first-come first-serve basis.

The Library’s spring fever can be tracked on Twitter at @librarycongress and #SpringFling. To learn more about all the programming during this time, please go to https://www.loc.gov/
