In the United States, the presidential library system is a nationwide network of 13 libraries administered by the Office of Presidential Libraries, which is part of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

These are repositories for preserving and making available the papers, records, collections and other historical materials of every President of the United States since Herbert Hoover.

Although not officially sanctioned and maintained by NARA, libraries have been organized for several Presidents who preceded the official start of the Presidential Library Office.

In other words, Obama’s will be closed to the public.

Well, you know the Romans and Egyptians build monuments to their demi-god masters. To the people on top who were infinitely more important than the peons.

Same thing.

Uh, eh, about the same as the purpose of various Halls of Fame. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Gag me with a spoon!
