(Aug. 27, 2001) -- A new series of advertisements aimed at generating awareness for the Library of Congress' educational Web site broke today with five TV spots.

Created by Omnicom Group's DDB Worldwide, Chicago, on a volunteer basis, the campaign targets students and parents and aims to encourage children to use the Library of Congress Web site as a tool to learn about American history.

The humorous public service announcements, five in all, are voiced by actress and comedian Janeane Garafalo. They feature children engaging in games ranging from soccer to swimming, and cardboard cutouts of some of America's most famous historical figures. -- Rich Thomaselli
