Mount Vernon's New Library

Mount Vernon broke ground today (4/14/11) on the new 45,000 square foot Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington. Slated to open in 2013, the library will "provide a secure and environmentally-friendly home to Mount Vernon’s vast and growing collection of books, manuscripts, and other archival materials."

More information about the project, the collection, the Scholars' Residence and to take a virtual tour, see the Mount Vernon site.
