BASE, Books for Arkansas Students’ Education

What do you know about BASE?

BASE, Books for Arkansas Students’ Education, is an innovative program to provide free books about Arkansas’ natural, cultural, and political history to public high schools across the state. The Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) and the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies developed BASE for media specialists and teachers in all Arkansas public high schools. Schools have been allotted points, based on their school district’s economic need, with which to buy BASE books. When the purchaser has chosen his or her volumes CALS will ship them to the school. The school pays no money for this service, which is funded by donations to BASE.

How can you help?

Donate! CALS and the Butler Center need donations of new and used Arkansas history and culture books. To donate, mark your books “BASE donation” and drop them off at any CALS branch or at River Market Books & Gifts on the Main Library campus in downtown Little Rock. Books may also be mailed to: 100 Rock St., Little Rock, AR 72201. Click here to see our book wish list.

I don't think the wish list link is working. I hope to do a BASE donation soon. Keep up the good work!
