Rent a telescope, fishing poles and more at the library!

Spend more time outdoors with the family after checking out a telescope, a birdwatching kit, or fishing poles. Get decluttered and organized with a KonMari workshop.

Did you know that the Central Arkansas Library System has the tools and resources you need to make your New Year’s resolution a reality?

Stewart Fuell with CALS says he wants to spend more time outdoors so he rented a bird watching kit (with binoculars and a field guide) and took his kids to Pinnacle Mountain.

"We got to see some great birds, got to identify some, my teenager loved it," he says.

You can also check out a telescope or fishing poles.
