The gounds and approach looked fabulous on this Saturday when it would normally be open from 9 to 5. Alas, the impasse in Congress means we can't see it this time. When are we going to teach those bozos a lesson about getting along ?

The exhibits were well done and it was a remarkable experience to see the Nobel Peace medal. What made library unique though was what President Carter has done since leaving the White... More

He may not have been the most loved President, but he is an outstanding human being! I was very impressed with his history and family life. The things that were accomplished during his presidency are outlined as well as some of the failures. I loved learning about his family life growing up and how important his faith is to him....
