Definitive Droids & Legendary Libraries

Our version of the past doesn't take a backseat to the future.

Blast from the past

The Library of Congress

As the United States' oldest federal cultural institution, The Library of Congress hosts one of the largest collections of books in the world and is a great source of photos, maps, manuscripts, and more. The congressional library was housed in the Capitol building until it moved to one of its current locations in 1897.

On this day

Happy Birthday Kenny Baker

The man inside Luke Skywalker's trusted droid, Kenny Baker, would have turned 86 today. Coming in a few inches under 4 ft tall, Baker's presence never felt small, lifting his Jedi Master when he needed him most.
