Presidential Libraries Debut New Passport Program
Washington, DC…The National Archives announces a new visitor Program, “Passport to Presidential Libraries,” that gives visitors an opportunity to purchase a special keepsake booklet they can take with them on their travels to Presidential Libraries across the nation. When purchased, visitors will receive a commemorative stamp in their booklet during their visit and may take the booklet with them to every Presidential Library they visit in the future. Once they collect stamps from all Presidential Libraries, they may visit any of the Presidential Libraries for a unique gift.
While the Passport includes dedicated spaces for stamps, it also includes helpful and fascinating information related to each Presidential Library including presidential quotes, photographs of documents and artifacts from our holdings, and specific information about the unique experience a visitor will have at each location. The Passport also includes pages dedicated to future Presidential Libraries, so that the book can grow with visitors as time progresses and new Presidential Libraries join the system.
The Passports can be purchased at any Presidential Library, as well as the National Archives Gift Shop in Washington D.C. The Passport retails for $5.00.
