WASHINGTON —

The White House says President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will attend the opening of former President George W. Bush's presidential library later this month in Dallas.

Bush and former first lady Laura Bush will dedicate the library at Southern Methodist University on April 25. The library opens to the public on May 1.

The 23-acre presidential center, which includes the library, a museum and a policy institute, has been under construction for two years. It will house more than 43,000 artifacts from Bush's presidency and more than 200 million emails.

Officials from the University of Chicago and the University of Hawaii have both traveled to Dallas to meet with officials at Bush's fledgling library as they prepare a bid to host Obama's presidential library.
