Robert Sokol has worked 12 years in the Office of the Librarian, crafting the Library of Congress’ public identity and working on initiatives that increase awareness and place the country’s oldest cultural institution at the forefront of technology. Sokol began his tenure at the Library as a graphic and web designer and was instrumental in creating the institution’s early presence on the Internet. Among his projects as creative director, he worked on the advertising campaigns of the first National Book Festivals, the Library’s annual event that draws tens of thousands of booklovers to the National Mall to meet and hear from their favorite authors. Sokol worked with the creative team and managed the production of the the Library of Congress Experience – an award-winning program that provides innovative access to rare cultural treasures in ways that inspire and engage learners of all ages.
