  • The nicest of the three Presidential Libraries I saw (LBJ, Clinton and Carter). Presents a great picture of his entire life before during and after the Presidency. Set in very beautiful gardens on the site of Sherman's headquarters at the Battle of Atlanta. It also had lovely views of down town.
  • Took some time today reacquainting myself with President Carter's rise to the Oval Office. This is a wonderful facility nestled in a quiet setting just east of downtown. We caught a ride to the library and were able to easily walk back.
  • My first visit to a presidential library and museum. Very nice to find out more about President Carter his wife and family and those that were close to him. It was cool to see some of the documents, notes etc. that he wrote. Campaign materials and all of the things that were going on while he was in office. And it gives you information on what they have been doing since he left office. I found everything very interesting and hope to visit more of these!
  • The space is amazing. My organization Women Veteran Social Justice Network from Atlanta is hosting it's 10th anniversary here because the grounds are so beautiful and the service and support is awesome. Even through the government furlough happened things are moving ahead well. Looking forward to celebrating with friends and family.
  • 3 years ago, when I visited this place, I questioned something to the employee. The person was very surprised at me and asked why you want to enter the library? Almost her face was that I am ready to call police man....I re-asked her, that is not the public library? She laughed and answered that is the research institution, not public library. Yes, you can only enter the museum. The library is a research center. However, the museum is really great! You can see the former president' history and imitated white house, and very impressive artworks. Also the garden is really wonderful.
