A Hawk Got Loose in the Library of Congress

No, really... a hawk is loose in the Library of Congress main reading room. They are trying to catch it, but can't help educating people at the same time. Hey, they're librarians!

So you're not feeding it any mice?

No, and no bookworms either.

How much do you think the bird is worth?

Once we get it in hand, I would say it's worth at least two in the bush. Or at least that's what the Geico commercial says.

Will you be releasing any other wildlife into the Main Reading Room?

Staff are contemplating that, both to keep themselves alert and on their toes, and also to prevent researchers from taking long naps.
