About the Library
Fletcher Library offers patrons much more than traditional library fare; the facility received recognition from the Arkansas Institute for Architects. Patrons have a wide selection of adult and children's books as well as CDs and DVDs. The 13,500-square-feet library opened in 1996 and provides access to public meeting rooms and programs for all ages.
