“Presidential Libraries promote understanding of the presidency and the American experience.”
The National Archives and Records Administration has a great website for learning about the presidential libraries. Since 1939, the National Archives have been setting up libraries in order to preserve documents and historical materials of each president since Herbert Hoover.
There are 13 libraries in the NARA system, and other libraries that have been established under foundations or state governments. The National Archives site supplies information for visiting the presidential libraries and opportunities to research the presidential documents. You can even listen to the voices of the presidents in these podcasts.
Wikipedia offers the following list of links to the websites of the presidential libraries:
