The announcement was made today (Thursday), on what would have been by Reed's 75th birthday, by his widow, Laurie Anderson. The Main Library and the Library for the Performing Arts will each display different artifacts over the next two weeks and hold programs related to the material.

The library says that The Lou Reed Archive includes approximately 300 linear feet of paper records, electronic records and photographs and approximately 3,600 audio and 1,300 video recordings.
