Kids with nothing to do?

Posted By on Sat, Jun 7, 2008 at 6:31 AM

The Clinton Library is offering a series of Saturday programs, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., tailored to kids. First one is today.


The Clinton Center kicks off Super Summer Saturdays starting Saturday, June 7, at the Clinton Library.  Super
Summer Saturdays offers special activities including tours of The White House in Miniature, crafts, story time, and a special snack at Café 42.

Sponsored by Alltel, Super Summer Saturdays is offered every Saturday from June 7 until July 12 from 10:00am until 4:00pm. Special activities include:

June 7:  Poetry for Children

June 14:  Kickoff and sign up for the Central Arkansas Library System's Summer Reading Club

July 5:  Patriotic Crafts

We're pleased to offer exciting programming for children and their parents this summer.  Because of the generosity of Alltel, we are able to provide quality educational activities that the whole family can enjoy, said
Stephanie Streett, Executive Director of the William J. Clinton Foundation.

The White House in Miniature is a faithful representation of its inspiration located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The mini masterpiece is a hand-crafted model based on a one-foot-to-one-inch scale.  On display in the Library's Garden View Room, The White House in Miniature was created and is  continuously updated by John Zweifel and family. The 60-foot by 20-foot structure opens up rooms seldom seen by the public. Details include hand-carved furniture; tiny paintings that match the exact
colors of the original works of art; working miniature televisions and clocks; and hundreds of tiny lights which illuminate the chandeliers.  The exhibit runs through July 13.

Children under the age of six are admitted to the Library at no charge. Snacks and crafts associated with Super Summer Saturdays are free.

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
