WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama have spent much of their Sunday meeting with officials planning the design and construction of his presidential library.

The meetings have been conducted at an office building about two blocks from the White House with the president and first lady spending about five hours there to discuss designs and to get other updates.

The meeting comes just a few days after the Barack Obama Foundation announced that a New York architectural firm would design the library. It will eventually be turned over to the National Archives and Records Administration to operate.

Completion of the presidential library is expected in 2020 or 2021. This is the second Sunday in recent months that Obama has dedicated to work on the library.
