Have you ever tried to download an ebook only to be told that you have to wait? It doesn’t make sense – how can multiple people not use a digital file at the same time? You would think that’s the main benefit of a digital book over a physical one.
Birdwatching kits available at CALS!
Thanks to a generous memorial gift from the family of Alan Ross Kumpe, each CALS branch has birdwatching kits available for checkout to all CALS cardholders. Each kit contains a carrying bag, Celestron binoculars, binocular guide, polishing cloth, lens caps (three), and one book (Birds of Arkansas).
Playground at Children’s Library
Thanks to the Kline Prize awarded to CALS in 2021, CLLC is getting a new feature, a playground! If you have been to that branch lately, you might have noticed the puzzle that is the unassembled playground.
