The bookstore is operated by Eastern National, a partner of the National Park Service that sells books and other educational materials and operates many other bookstores at national park sites throughout the country. Proceeds from sales support National Mall and Memorial Parks and other National Parks.
The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial bookstore is located near the memorial entrance along West Basin Drive and is open daily from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.
Did You Know?
Franklin Roosevelt, like three other presidents whose memorials grace the National Mall, commanded attention because of his stature. Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Roosevelt all stood over six feet tall. Before he was confined to a wheelchair, FDR stood out in a crowd at 6’2” tall.
