LITTLE ROCK, AR - Organizers of the opening of the Clinton Presidential Library have made sure that Arkansas school children will play a role in the dedication.

The library invited students from across the state to be guests for Thursday's ceremony to officially open the library near downtown Little Rock.  After the opening, the library has already begun to arrange tours for classes.

Eighth graders from Augusta will be the first group to visit the library when student tours begin November 29.

Educators say the library offers a unique opportunity for students to learn about both politics and government.
