Little Rock to open $12 million children's library

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A new $12 million children's library is set to open this weekend in Little Rock.

The Central Arkansas Library System plans an opening celebration Saturday for its Children's Library and Learning Center, located on 10th Street in midtown Little Rock.

The 30,000-square-foot facility includes a computer lab, greenhouse, teaching kitchen and theater - along with a collection of more than 21,000 books, DVDs and CDs. The library was paid for by a bond issue approved by voters in 2007.

The library will be open Monday through Saturday.

This weekend's celebration includes a children's concert, games and food tastings.
