Presidential Libraries
The Presidential Library system formally began in 1939, when President Franklin Roosevelt donated his personal and Presidential papers to the Federal Government. Thus the first Presidential Library was born. This site, maintained by the National Archives & Records, gives information and web pages of each Presidential Library. Previous to President Roosevelt, Presidential papers were given to the Library of Congress
