CALS considers naming new library for Clinton

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Central Arkansas Library System is considering a plan to name its new children's library in honor of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The library's board of trustees is now accepting public comment on the plan. The board says it wishes to honor Clinton's work as Arkansas' first lady, as well as her charitable work with Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families and Arkansas Children's Hospital.

Clinton was also involved in several early childhood education initiatives.

The library opened its new children's library on 10th Street in Little Rock earlier this year.

The board of trustees is accepting comments via email or at its main library location in downtown Little Rock. The board plans to take up the proposal at its meeting June 27 in Little Rock.
