Read, listen, look 

Libraries aren't just about books anymore.


Libraries aren't just about books anymore. These days, digital books are on loan at the library (including readers, if you don't own your own) and music downloads are free if you're a member of the Laman Library in North Little Rock. Art has found its way into library life, as well — there are galleries at the Arkansas Studies Institute, a part of the Central Arkansas Library System that houses its Butler Center of Arkansas history, and at the Laman Library, too. The Main Library in downtown Little Rock has moved its fiction to a renovated fifth floor to serve as the main reading room.
