The Folger Shakespeare Library is the world’s largest Shakespeare collection. In addition to being the world's largest Shakespeare collection, the Folger is home to major collections of other rare Renaissance books, manuscripts, and works of art. Located a block from the US Capitol, the Folger serves a wide audience of scholars, visitors, teachers, students, families, and theater- and concert-goers. The Folger opened in 1932, as a gift to the American people from founders Henry and Emily Folger.
