About National First Ladies' Library



Mission Statement

As the first and only facility of its kind, the National First Ladies' Library serves as a unique national resource for patrons from school children to serious scholars. As a national archive devoted to educating people about the contributions of First Ladies and other notable women in history, the Library's holdings fill an informational void that has long frustrated academicians and armchair history buffs alike. The Library fulfills this mission by serving as a physical educational facility and an electronic virtual library, in an effort to educate people in the United States and around the world.


Located in 2 buildings, the National First Ladies' Library provides interpretive tours to the general public on the achievements of our nation's First Ladies and the life of Ohio First Lady, Ida Saxton McKinley. Educational programs for people of various ages are also available throughout the year.


We'll work with your schedule.
