How many books are in the Library of Congress?
By PS

Thomas Jefferson’s concept of universality, the belief that all subjects are important to the library of the American legislature, is the philosophy and rationale behind the comprehensive collecting policies of the Library of Congress.  

Today’s Library of Congress holds a collection of more than 144 million items, including more than 33 million cataloged books and other print materials in 460 languages; more than 63 million manuscripts; the largest rare book collection in North America; and the world’s largest collection of legal materials, films, maps, sheet music and sound recordings.
