The AT&T Foundation announced a grant Tuesday of $200,000 to the George Bush Presidential Library Foundation at Texas A&M University.

These funds will help with the major renovation of the nine-year-old facility that is scheduled to begin this month.

"The AT&T grant will help update the Bush Library core exhibit, detailing the life and career of President George Bush, by introducing interactive displays and simulations in an effort to enhance the educational experience of students," said Roman Popadiuk, executive director of the Bush Foundation.

As one of the three-most visited museums in the state of Texas, the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum hosts 43 million pages of documents and two million photographs. It receives over 400,000 students each year.

"This project will give visitors to the Bush Library a unique and personal experience of US history, the American presidency, and the outstanding leadership qualities and character of our 41st President," said Jim Cicconi, AT&T senior executive vice president of External and Legislative Affairs.
