To begin, please read about Presidential Libraries and Museums with the link that follows. You will see that they are part of the National Archives and belong to the American people. http://www.archives.gov/presidential-libraries/about/ and, for more details, go to http://www.archives.gov/presidential-libraries/faqs/#8
From our perspectives, having visited two Presidential Libraries and Museums, we believe that they are an excellent addition to our opportunities as citizens for learning American history.
While in College Station,Texas, we visited the George Bush Presidential Library, which is the library of the first President Bush. If you read about the Ceremony in College Station, you will know that President George H.W. and Barbara Bush were instrumental in the collaboration between Citizenship Counts and the Bush School of Government and Public Service. This collaboration made it possible for the Naturalization Ceremony on March 22nd to be held in the Annenberg Presidential Conference Center auditorium. The Bush Presidential Library is located on the campus of Texas A&M University along with the Bush School of Government and Public Service and the Bush Foundation. http://bushlibrary.tamu.edu/
While in Little Rock, Arkansas, we stayed in the city-owned RV park that is across the Arkansas River from the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum. The Library and Museum are located within the Clinton Presidential Center and Park. The Center includes the Clinton Foundation (Little Rock office) and the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service. http://www.clintonlibrary.gov/
Photos of our visits to both libraries are in our next blog.
