George Washington finally gets a Presidential library

Today marks the opening of the brand new National Library for the Study of George Washington at Mount Vernon.  The short video clip  from the Washington Times explains that while the library is privately funded and appointments are necessary to access it, it’s mission will be a very public one.  The library includes, not only Washington’s writing’s, but also his copy of The Constitution from the Constitutional Convention.
