IMLS Readies Celebrations for America's 250th Birthday With the America250 Foundation

IMLS and 20-plus other federal institutions signed an agreement with America250, “the nationwide commemoration of America’s 250th anniversary in 2026 led by the U.S. Semiquincentennial Commission.” The press release notes, “The Memorandum of Understanding for Cooperation in Support of the 250th Anniversary of the USA, which will support the multiyear effort to mark 250 years of American independence, was announced at an official ceremony held at the Library of Congress, with Dr. Carla Hayden, Librarian of Congress, presenting the opening remarks and Frank Giordano, executive director for the Commission, providing the welcome to assembled federal partners.”

These federal partners will help plan the festivities, creating signature programs and activities that leverage their specific historical assets. For example, IMLS has awarded a National Leadership Grant to the American Philosophical Society to create a digital portal showcasing unknown history in Philadelphia and other grant funds to the Massachusetts Library System to make a civic education resource for “young changemakers.”

Specific plans for the celebration will be unveiled in the coming months and years. 

For more information, read the press release.
