President Barack Obama has said he still has not made up his mind about where his presidential library will be located.

Obama told a reporter that 'Honolulu is his birthplace, it's the place where he grew up and he met so many friends and fond memories and it helped to shape him, so he did like to find a way that after his presidency that connection remains.

In an interview with KITV, the President added that 'but he lived in Chicago now and that's where he grew up professionally. It is a tough choice, but it's not one that he has made yet.

According to Politico, it was Obama's first interview with a local Hawaii station since he took office, and KITV reporter Yunji de Nies said the library question was one of the most pressing that viewers had.

But Obama is keeping his options open, the report added. (ANI)
