The Billy Graham Library is reopening four days after services for the evangelist.

The library in Charlotte reopens to the public Wednesday.

The Rev. Billy Graham died Feb. 21 at age 99 at his home in Montreat. His funeral and burial occurred on the library grounds Friday.

The Billy Graham Library opened in 1997 to carry on Graham's ministry. Visitors from 91 countries have toured the library, which includes a Journey of Faith tour which ends with an invitation from Billy Graham and his son Franklin to become a Christian.

Admission to the library is free.
