I was very young during Bush's presidency. I enjoyed getting a deeper understanding of the politics of the time, and his presidency. I vaguely knew that he had had something to do with the oil business, and seeing his accomplishments was really cool. The Gulf...More

This was the 3rd library that we have visited. The library was a great tribute to President Bush. The library was organized very well and had activities to keep young children interested. We found the exhibits interesting and learned much about his early career.
