About the Presidential Libraries
The National Archives and Records Administration operates twelve Presidential Libraries, representing U.S. Presidents from Herbert Hoover through Bill Clinton.  These are not libraries in the usual sense.  They are archives and museums, preserving the written record and physical history of our presidents, while providing special programs and exhibits that serve their communities.  These libraries, described by President Reagan as “classrooms of Democracy,” belong to the American people and provide to the public insight into the times in which these presidents lived and served the nation.  For more information about Presidential Libraries, visit
