President Bush, U2's Bono to Share Stage at Dedication of Clinton Library

NOVEMBER 12, 2004 - Posted at 5:05 p.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The RSVP list is growing for the dedication next week of the Clinton Presidential Library.

President George W. Bush is to be on hand Thursday, and rock singer Bono is to be in Little Rock, too.  The dignitaries will be among 30,000 invited guests that will pack into the library grounds just east of downtown.

The city and the library have made plans to accomodate folks who can't get on the guest list.  The dedication will be carried on big screen TVs in the River Market District, some of which will be closed to traffic to create a big block party atmosphere.

There are plenty of events scheduled through the week that the public can attend, though some require advance tickets.

The official events begin tomorrow with a 3.1 mile foot race downtown.

Also attending Thursday's dedication will be former presidents George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter.  Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton will be in the city, too.
