AUSTIN — An $11 million renovation of the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library in Austin is now complete.

The facility re-opened on Saturday. A brief ceremony marked the end of the year-long project.

The grand re-opening coincides with Lady Bird Johnson's 100th birthday.

Displays include letters written by all of the living first ladies, encouraging the U.S. Postal Service to create a stamp collection for the occasion.

Some of the "fan favorites" from the 41-year-old library are back, including an animatronic LBJ exhibit.

There are also some new interactive features and stations that show how the bills that Johnson signed still affect Americans today.
