The building in front of you is the nation's first presidential library. FDR was deeply involved in every facet of the library's development. He envisioned the library as a place where the public could examine the evidence of his Presidency and draw their own conclusions about his legacy. He chose a Dutch Colonial style of architecture for the building to represent a sense of endurance. The library opened on June 30, 1941.

The library houses important documents like the rough draft of the "Day of Infamy" speech (far right). FDR wrote this speech, December 7, 1941, shortly after the bombing of Pearl Habor.
