BOSTON (AP) – 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, inaugurated the 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, a new temporary exhibit gallery and classroom.

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 also was witnessed by fourth and fifth grade students from the Winship School, a Boston public school in Brighton.
