I think FDR would have been pleased with the way we rededicated his Library this past week.  It was a gathering of friends and neighbors; short speeches spoken from the heart; and a masterful storyteller, Geoffrey Ward, delighting the crowd with the story of how President Roosevelt planned and built the simple fieldstone building which houses his papers and all of his wonderful things.  We let everyone in free on opening day following the example FDR set on June 30, 1941 when he opened the museum for the very first time.

By all reports, our new museum has been very well received although a common complaint has emerged – there is just not enough time to see everything!!!  So when you plan your visit make sure you leave lots of time to see our amazing new exhibits.  Hope to see you soon.
