New Children's Library Offers Much Potential for Little Rock (Quality of Life | Winner, 20,000+)

So far, the library has been well received by the community. Peak summer programming in 2013 saw 300 kids a day, and the library actually had to turn away kids, Ernst said.

Since March 15, the facility has seen more than 42,000 visitors, a total that exceeds the traffic of some other branch libraries by more than 50 percent.

“Our numbers alone have sent a powerful message of support from our immediate communities and neighborhoods,” Ernst said.

“Moreover, the surrounding neighbors have helped spread the word and kept the campus safe and free and damage. The surrounding neighborhoods have greatly appreciated the investment for the long-term support of their children and young people.”
