Microsun first designed and installed the unique lamps in this collection for the Library of Congress in 1995. The Library of Congress—the largest library in the world—is frequented by scholars, researchers, and enthusiasts who often spend hours on end poring over texts. When you have millions of books, photographs, newspapers, maps, and manuscripts at your disposal, it’s important to have a source of light that won’t harm your eyes during an extended research session. Our Library of Congress reading lamps emit a full range of colors, resulting in lighting that allows you to read for a longer period of time without fatigue. These quintessentially American lamps became our best-selling collection due to their unrivaled craftsmanship and our patented full-spectrum lighting features.
