Possible Expansion to Woodrow Wilson Library

By  | 

The Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library needs room to expand, and Congressman Bob Goodlatte is trying to make that happen, with recently established legislation to provide the library with grant money for renovations.

Library Executive Director Eric Vettel says new artifacts are coming in every day taking up space. On Friday, the library received tens of thousands of documents from around the country, written by those close to the president while he was in office.

He says, "At this point, we've not only reached capacity, we've surpassed it. And we really do need, at this point, a new building, to move the museum into a new building. So this building that we're in right now can become the library and archive."

Congressman Goodlatte's legislation has already passed the House Committee. It will be reviewed by the House of Representatives before any money is given to the library.
