— reported by the American Library Association

The Pierpont Morgan Library in New York is scheduled to reopen April 29 after a three-year, $106-million expansion designed by Pritzker Prize–winning architect Renzo Piano.

The steel-and-glass addition by Piano, who designed the Pompidou Center in Paris, increases the exhibition space by over 50% and adds a 280-seat performance hall, a new reading room outfitted with electronic services and additional workstations, and an underground collection-storage area.
