The Folger Shakespeare Library is a world-class center for scholarship, learning, culture, and the arts. Home to the world’s largest Shakespeare collection and a primary repository for research material from the early modern period (1500–1750), the Folger Shakespeare Library is an internationally recognized research library offering advanced scholarly programs in the humanities. Collections include rare printed books, manuscripts, works of art, audiovisual materials, and modern scholarship. These materials extend beyond Shakespeare to include a wide range of disciplines–history and politics, theology and exploration, law and the arts–from the early modern period (1500–1750). New acquisitions of rare and modern materials are made regularly through purchases and the generosity of donors. A gift to the American people from industrialist Henry Clay Folger, the Folger Shakespeare Library–located one block east of the U.S. Capitol–opened in 1932.
