21 - September 23, 2000
April 21, 2000, the Library of Congress opened a Bicentennial exhibition
marking the centennial of the copyright registration of one of America's
most beloved books, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. American
creativity was on view in the exhibition, which featured not only
L. Frank Baum's copyright registration for this homegrown fairy
tale, but also Wizard-related play scripts, books, posters, drawings,
sheet music, film, games, and toys.
online exhibition is available at www.loc.gov/exhibits/oz.html
