Caroline Kennedy To Open New JFK Library Wing

This article is more than 8 years old.

A Boston library and museum dedicated to the memory of President John F. Kennedy is expanding with the opening of a new wing.

Caroline Kennedy, the president's only surviving child, is scheduled to inaugurate a new wing of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum on Wednesday.

The wing includes 15,000 square feet of archival storage, a staging area for exhibits and curatorial work, and a new temporary exhibit gallery.

It comes after the National Archives in 2001 conducted a program review of the Kennedy Presidential Library and concluded that it had storage problems.

The ceremony will also be witnessed by fourth and fifth grade students from the Winship School, a Boston Public School in Brighton.

This program aired on May 4, 2011. The audio for this program is not available.
