The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts continues to restructure, renovate and rekindle interest in classic works during the summer months.

In June, Jacqueline Z. Davis was named the new Barbara G. and Lawrence Fleischman executive director of the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. Davis assumes her new role Sept. 11, and will be continuing at the University of Kansas where she is the executive director of the Lied Center. Once she starts work at the NYPL, Davis will have "an instrumental role in the completion of the library's building at Lincoln Center and the return of the library ...to it's permanent home."

A NYPL spokesperson confirmed that work is moving according to schedule and the library will be permanently relocated to Lincoln Center in the spring of 2001.

Meanwhile, NYPL reports it is about to release the details of a major Oscar Wilde program in the near future.
