President Calvin Coolidge is the last president not to have a modern, government-funded, presidential library. The thirtieth president would likely take pride in this fact. After all, in his autobiography, the president wrote that it was fortunate that former presidents were “not supported at public expense after leaving office.”  But the time has come to give Coolidge a library–if not of bricks and mortar, then online. That is why the Calvin Coolidge Presidential Foundation has launched a bold effort to build “30” a virtual library in time for the 2023 centennial of Coolidge’s inauguration.

Building a library, even of the digital variety, is a big endeavor and the Coolidge Foundation is thankful for all the supporters who have helped make this project possible! Support comes in a variety of different forms for a project such as this.

  • Coolidge Scribes transcribe Coolidge’s numerous speeches and writings to get them ready for digital publication. Despite his nickname “Silent Cal”, President Coolidge had a lot to say, making Coolidge Scribes’ work all the more important.
  • Library Donors provide the financial support to make this endeavor possible. Their gifts help bring presidential history to life and share Coolidge’s wisdom and timeless values with generations of Americans to come. The Coolidge Foundation seeks to raise $50,000 for this project by 2023.
  • Partner Institutions help identify and share Coolidge writings and artifacts with the Coolidge Foundation for digital publication. Because President Coolidge doesn’t have a federally funded library, his collection is scatted across many collections and institutions. We thank all of our partner institutions, including the Forbes Library, for helping us consolidate and digitize their collections in order to make President Coolidge’s life and work more accessible for all.
