The new George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum is officially open. Which made us think about the other presidential libraries and their papers. National Archives has the locations and websites for each library along with background information. For instance, did you know there are design standards for the libraries? Regarding papers of past presidents, most depository libraries have copies but you find so much more at the individual libraries.

Here’s a goal, as you plan your summer trip, see if you can include a visit to a presidential library. What a great way to combine fun and history!

Don’t forget to come to our workshop next week!
