The Folger Shakespeare Library, opened in 1932, is home to the world’s largest collection of Shakespeare materials, as well as major collections of other rare Renaissance texts. It is a world-renowned research center on Shakespeare and on the early modern age in the West; its well-known public programs include plays, concerts, literary readings, family activities, and exhibitions.
