  • If you have a few minutes to spare and appreciate American history, stop on by. The library has limited hours, but any of the librarians are happy to open it up and allow you to explore.

  • It's not really a presidential library; Mrs. Coolidge made the request that his office when he was a lawyer should be preserved. I believe even the door says Law Office. The Library could not turn down her request but that is a public library, not a presidential library site. His homestead is in Vermont; that's where most people go. I don't believe all presidents have libraries.
  • Small, one room in the public library. Nice curated collection on the life of Coolidge.
  • So sad, it is the size of a living room. I know presidential libraries received funding post FDR, but Smith college or someone should fund a more respectable library.
