In 2016, a young citizen wrote to President Obama, imploring him to "do something fun", like wear a tie-dye shirt and shorts to "something important." The author opined that the country was in need of more spunk. President Obama's response was thoughtful and encouraging. The correspondence is one of thousands of letters catalogued in the records of the Obama White House.
The Presidential Library system comprises 14 Presidential Libraries. These facilities are overseen by the Office of Presidential Libraries, in the National Archives and Records Administration.
Under the Presidential Libraries Act in 1955 (amended in 1986), through archives, museums, and public programs, Presidential Libraries continue to preserve the documents and artifacts of our Presidents, helping us learn about our nation and our democracy.
