LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A series of events is planned in Little Rock this November to mark the 10th anniversary of the Clinton Presidential Center and to recognize the major economic boost the former president's library has brought to the city.

The Clinton Foundation plans a celebration from Nov. 14-Nov. 18, while the Little Rock Convention and Visitors Bureau will host 10 days of events to mark the anniversary of the center, which opened Nov. 18, 2004.

Foundation officials say former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are expected to attend several of the events.

The city's downtown has transformed drastically since Clinton announced that his presidential library would be built in Little Rock. Officials say the number of tourists visiting the city has grown 25 percent since 2003.
