Festival Institute Bybee Library Dedication Postponed
Due to delays in construction and installation of essential services, the Festival Institute will reschedule the opening and dedication for a later date, yet to be determined. The postponement will insure that staff and volunteers have ample time to conduct the move-in and install works of art when furnishings and shelving are complete.
"Over the past month, it has become clear that we will need more time to complete the library and gallery areas," said curator Lamar Lentz. "Rather than rush to open by the September date, we have decided to delay the dedication to ensure that everything is just right. We apologize for any inconvenience this date change may cause, especially for those who have made plans for the September celebration."
The Festival Institute will announce its schedule of events for the library opening when the new dedication date is set.
