President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will attend the opening of former President George W. Bush’s presidential library in Dallas on April 25.

Mr. Bush and former first lady Laura Bush will dedicate the library on the campus of Southern Methodist University. The 23-acre presidential center, which includes the library, a museum and a policy institute, has been under construction for two years.

The center will house more than 43,000 artifacts from Bush’s presidency and more than 200 million emails. It will open to the public on May 1.

The Associated Press reported that officials from the University of Chicago and the University of Hawaii have both traveled to Dallas to meet with officials at Bush’s fledgling library as they prepare a bid to host Obama’s presidential library.
