The National First Ladies' Library is a national archive devoted to obtaining and sharing resources pertaining to the First Ladies of the United States of America. The historical site also presents information on other U.S. women of historical note. The First Ladies' National Historic Site is housed within the circa 1865 Saxton-McKinley House, family home of First Lady Ida McKinley; and presents relevant exhibits. The National First Ladies' Library is located within the 1895 City National Bank Building.

The site offers exhibits, educational programs, tours of both the historical site and library, and research library access. Reservations are required for tour groups of six or more. The website offers an extensive searchable listing of lesson plans, a timeline of major national events, and a virtual tour of the Saxton-McKinley House.
