HYDE PARK, N.Y. (AP) - The Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum in New York is marking its 75th anniversary this week with a series of events.

The nation’s first presidential library was officially dedicated on June 30, 1941, in Hyde Park, FDR’s hometown located 75 miles north of New York City.

The library houses millions of pages of historical documents about Roosevelt, the nation’s 32nd president and the only one elected to four terms.

The 75th anniversary is being celebrated Thursday with a ceremony for library members and invited guests only, followed by the public opening of the library exhibit “Day of Infamy: 24 Hours that Changed History.” A panel discussion of the history of the library also will be held.

Other events include a theatrical performance on Friday and Saturday.
