Abilene, Kan. - All public events at the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum in Abilene, Kansas, are cancelled through June. Regretfully, this also includes the Symphony at Sunset Annual D-Day Commemoration Concert slated for June 6.

"We deeply regret having to cancel this year's concert. We look forward to this event each year. However, the safety of our community is paramount. We are making efforts to either reschedule or move programs into a virtual capacity where possible. Unfortunately, the symphony concert does not lend itself to either of those options," states Dawn Hammatt, Director.

The National Archives and Records Administration is committed to protecting the health and safety of visitors, customers, and employees during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. Exhibit and research facilities are closed to the public until further notice. The library staff is making every effort to continue providing essential services whenever possible, using online and remote capabilities.
