Name Change Coming to Our Social Media

Soon, the Facebook and Twitter accounts currently labeled as “CALS Butler Center” will have a different name: CALS Roberts Library! No worries: it’s still the same account and will give you all the news and information you want from this branch of our library system, including the latest from the Galleries at Library Square and the Butler Center.

We officially renamed and dedicated our CALS Bobby L. Roberts Library of Arkansas History & Art in April 2019 to recognize the contributions of the library’s former executive director. The name of this building has caused a lot of confusion over the years! Many people called it “the Butler Center,” which is actually a department housed inside the building. So, to make everything clear and help people find our many wonderful programs, we are going to make sure that all our social media accounts use the accurate name for this CALS branch library location. This change is coming soon!
