Education is for everyone.

There's something at Smithsonian Libraries for learners of all ages. Here at the world's largest museum library system, we inspire future generations through a world-class collection of books, manuscripts, and artifacts.

Through our Education Department, we offer innovative programs, access to expansive digital collections and rare treasures, immersive classroom experiences, and professional opportunities for youth and graduate students considering careers in museum and libraries. This summer, the Education Department is using Unstacked to build the Latinx Narratives Project, an innovative hands-on program serving nationwide learning sites.

Smithsonian Libraries Education has a variety of programs for learners of all ages in the Washington, D.C. area. To learn more about our current programs for young children, middle schoolers, and teens, contact us at
