George W. Bush library dedication begins in Dallas

DALLAS (AP) - The dedication ceremony for the George W. Bush Presidential Center has begun.

After a performance of "God Bless America," former Commerce Secretary Don Evans gave welcoming remarks. He chairs the George W. Bush Foundation.

Bush and President Barack Obama, along with former Presidents Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter and George W. Bush's father, George H.W. Bush, are all expected to give remarks on the stage flanked by American flags in front of the entrance to the library.

The center on the campus of Southern Methodist University includes the presidential library and museum along with the 43rd president's policy institute. The center opens to the public May 1.

A crowd of about 10,000 was gathered for the outdoor ceremony under clear blue skies with morning temperatures in the 50s.
