Caroline Kennedy will open a new wing next week at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum.
The daughter of the slain president will join Director Tom Putnam for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 12:30 p.m. on May 4.
In 2001 the National Archives conducted a program review of the library that concluded that "storage problems seen at the Kennedy Library are the worst in the entire presidential library system.”
Congress approved the funding to design and build a 30,000-square-foot addition to the library building on Columbia Point to ensure the appropriate preservation and security of President Kennedy’s papers and historical artifacts.
JFK was born 94 years ago on May 29.
