This year is the 50th anniversary of that historical event, and on Saturday, July 20th, at 2 p.m., we are partnering with the Arkansas Sky Observatory to present “The Legacy of Apollo 11” in our auditorium. Spaceflight historian Stephen Mills will talk about the achievements and struggles of NASA and the astronauts. There will also be authentic NASA memorabilia and more on display.

The library will be a drop point for the United Way of the Ouachita's annual Stuff the Bus.

What is Stuff the Bus? Stuff the Bus eases the financial burden on families with school-aged children. Giving a student the required supplies promotes learning, encourages self-esteem, and helps kids stay in school. It's more than just supplies -- it's the first step to prepare students for a fulfilling, successful future. 

Drop off any new school supplies throughout the month of July at the library.
Find out first about exciting programs, see pictures from library events, and enjoy the occasional ridiculous meme.
