FOCAL Projects

FOCAL activities generate funds that are used to supplement programming at all CALS branches. FOCAL donated over $112,000 to CALS programs and projects in 2010. These programs encourage reading and library participation.

Annual FOCAL projects include grants to CALS branches and departments for programming, support for the Arkansas Literary Festival, Book Club Kits, endowment fund donations, Movie Licensing fees, Read to Me (providing free board books to infants and toddlers whose parents register them for library cards), distributing free books to elementary school children, Summer Reading Club, Saturday morning programming at the Main Library, and scholarship funds.

FOCAL can always use help. If you are interested in volunteering for any FOCAL project, please contact Angela Delaney at 918-3095 or click here if you would like more information on volunteering with FOCAL.
