Point of Interest

Oley Eldon Rooker

Oley Eldon Rooker was a Little Rock (Pulaski County) businessman whose neighborhood engagement and support of library funding led to a branch of the Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) that opened in 2010 being named in his honor. A committee of the CALS Board of Trustees held a public meeting at its Dee Brown branch library on June 22, 2009, to solicit possible names for the new facility, and Oley E. Rooker’s was the only name submitted. The CALS Board unanimously approved naming the library for Rooker at its June 25, 2009, meeting.
