    Newly released details on the planned George W. Bush Presidential Library depict a single building to house the library, museum and a policy institute.

    Construction is slated to begin in November at the Bush complex at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. The Bush library is expected to be completed by early 2013.

    The updated plans, released Wednesday, include more than a dozen pages of illustrations. The layout shows two parking lots just north of the library.

    The Dallas Morning News reports Bush's policy institute and library is building an online presence on Facebook.

    Colin Stewart, chief operating officer of the George W. Bush Foundation, says the Facebook application already has attracted about 6,000 users.
