Your gift to the National Library Service makes our mission statement a reality—ensuring “That All May Read.” Your tax-deductible donation helps to place audio and braille books, magazines, and music scores and materials—as well as specially designed playback equipment—into the lives of eligible users around the country, and at no charge to them.

With a gift of $50 or more, you become a member of Friends of the Library of Congress and join a community committed to preserving and expanding the Library’s collections. You will also have unique opportunities to experience and learn about the Library of Congress.
