The Butler Center for Arkansas Studies’ monthly “Legacies & Lunch” program takes place the first Wednesday of the month at noon.
The focus of today’s program does not stray too far. It is the Central Arkansas Library System, itself.
Since the opening of the single Carnegie Library in 1910, library service in Little Rock has evolved to include multiple branches in two counties. The story of the Central Arkansas Library System is filled with unique personalities, grassroots efforts, and visionary ideas. Historian, librarian, and archivist Tim Nutt will highlight the history of CALS and some of the important events and individuals that have contributed to the system’s success.
Tim Nutt is the director of the Historical Research Center at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.
The program takes place in the Darragh Center on the CALS Library Square campus.
