    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Central Arkansas Library System) - The Central Arkansas Library System's Board of Trustees is considering recognizing Hillary Rodham Clinton by naming the new children's Library in her honor.

    The Board said it wants to acknowledge the work she did as a citizen of Arkansas, including service for the Children's Defense Fund, Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families, Arkansas Home Instruction Program for Preschool Youth, Arkansas Children's Hospital, Arkansas Educational System Task Force, Rural Healthy Advisory Committee, and many others, including her ground-breaking work as co-chair of Arkansas's Educational Standards Committee. We also wish to recognize her continued work at the national and international levels to improve the lives of all the world's children.

    The Board is asking for the public's comments on this issue. Opinions can be emailed to board@cals.org, or by letter to Board of Trustees, Central Arkansas Library System, 100 Rock Street, Little Rock, Arkansas, 72201. The Board of Trustees will take up this matter at its monthly meeting at the Children's Library on June 27, beginning at noon. Persons wishing to speak on this issue are encouraged to attend.
