"The Vatican Apostolic Library reopened its hallowed halls Monday following a three-year renovation, according to library officials.

Climate-controlled rooms for precious manuscripts, electronic microchips in books, and state-of-the-art security measures to prevent theft and loss are just a few of the changes made to the library, officials said.

Pictures released by the Vatican give the public a rare view of the library, which is open only to teachers, scholars and researchers."
