Well, it's not the Library of Congress, but it's a start:

The Friends of the New Boston Public Library will host the first program of their 2005-2006 Guest Author Series on Tuesday, Oct. 18, at the New Boston Library at 7 p.m.
Lou Antonelli of Hooks will be the featured author. Antonelli has published many works of science fiction and his most recent short story called, "A Rocket for the Republic," was published last month in the prestigious Asimov's Science Fiction.
This magazine is the second largest science fiction periodical in the United States with a circulation of nearly 30,000 and has been published over 35 years.
Antonelli had four stories honored with honorable mentions in "The Year's Best Science Fiction, 22nd annual collection" anthology published in 2005 by St. Martin's Press of New York City - the most of any Texas science fiction author. Antonelli will read his short story and invite questions and discussion from those in attendance.
He will donate a signed copy of the magazine to the library featuring his story. Antonelli's talk will begin at 7 p.m. on the evening of the program; however, the Friends of the Library's October business session will begin at 6:30.
Interested community members are invited to attend both meetings.
