  • JEFF BASKIN: NLR library leader dies.
The CaringBridge website for Jeff Baskin, the long-director of North Little Rock's Laman Public Library, reports that he died last night. He was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer in mid-July. His leadership transformed the library with new branches, ambitious programs of education and entertainment and other elements of the new world of libraries as something more than a repository for books on paper.

UPDATE: Funeral will be at 1 p.m. Thursday at Griffin Leggett, 5800 W. 12th Street, Little Rock.
