Presidential Libraries

The Presidential Library system is made up of eleven Presidential Libraries. These are not traditional libraries, but rather repositories for preserving and making available the papers, records, and other historical materials of U.S. Presidents since Herbert Hoover. Each Presidential library contains a museum and provides an active series of public programs.
