Special Bookplate Celebrates CALS’s Centennial

Donating a book for someone is a wonderful way to honor or remember them. In celebration of 100 years of service to our community and our 100th anniversary, the Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) has designed a special centennial bookplate. For a donation of $15, this special bookplate will be placed in a book. Bookplates will be sold through December 31, 2010. Patrons may not request a certain book, but may request a subject or a branch for the book to be housed.

Payment for the plates may be made with cash, a check made to CALS Endowment, or a credit card; and may be purchased online at, in any of the branches, or over the phone at 918-3029. A form must be completed with the donor’s name and address and the honoree’s name and address. When a plate is purchased in honor or memory of someone, CALS will send an acknowledgement to the honoree or the honoree’s family. Acknowledgements will be sent immediately, but the plating process may take up to 2 months for completion.

CALS libraries in Little Rock include: Main Library, 100 Rock Street; Dee Brown Library, 6325 Baseline Road; Fletcher Library, 823 North Buchanan Street; Terry Library, 2015 Napa Valley Drive; Thompson Library, 38 Rahling Circle; Williams Library, 1800 Chester Street; and McMath Library, 2100 John Barrow Road.
