Jefferson personally collected thousands of books in his lifetime and his personal library became an important basis for the Library of Congress's revived collection after the British burned Washington in 1814. LibraryThing, a social networking site for book lovers, has reproduced Jefferson's library based on the collection he sold to Congress in 1815. Jefferson's library is one of several Libraries of Early America, which attempt to recreate the book collections of many of the Founding Fathers.
