This year we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Jefferson Library. We invite you to view our commemorative exhibit, The Jefferson Library: Two Decades of Scholarship and Community, in the library lobby through January 2023, and to see even more content in the digital companion to the exhibit.

The Jefferson Library is now open to public researchers by appointment only. Click here to make an appointment.
