A new special edition of the Architect of the Capitol (AOC) employee magazine, Tholos, is now available.

Since January 6, 2021, we have received thousands of letters and emails from grateful citizens all across the country, thanking our staff for their efforts on that day and every day. Even at a time when the pandemic has limited visitors at the U.S. Capitol, AOC employees are still able to inspire Americans near and far.

We hope you enjoy reading a selection of these notes in this issue.
