Hillary Clinton's library

Monday, July 8, 2013 - 4:47pm

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is getting a library.

Well, kind of.

The Central Arkansas Library System on Monday is dedicating the Hillary Rodham Clinton Children's Library and Learning Center in Little Rock.

The system's board of trustees voted in June to name the new library after Clinton, citing her work on children's issues during her tenure as first lady of Arkansas. Her husband, former President Bill Clinton, served as governor from 1983 to 1992.

Located on a six-acre site, the 30,000 square foot library cost $12 million and includes a computer lab with 14 computers, as well as a teaching kitchen, theater and more than 21,000 books DVDs and CDs.

Clinton is expected to attend the dedication ceremony.

The children's library is the latest building in Little Rock to bear the Clinton name. Last year, the Little Rock Municipal Airport Commission voted to rename Little Rock National Airport after the state's (and country's) famous former first couple. It's now known as Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport.

The William J. Clinton Presidential Center is also located in Little Rock.
