LITTLE ROCK, AR - Former President Bill Clinton dedicated a presidential library stamp at the Clinton Presidential Library and Museum today in Little Rock.  At the dedication this morning, Clinton talked about how important presidential libraries are as keepers of culture and history.

National Archivist Allen Weinstein was in Little Rock as well, saying that he chose the Clinton Library because the Clinton Foundation spearheaded the presidential library stamp effort.

The stamp is being issued by the U.S. Postal Service in observance of the 50th anniversary of the Presidential Libraries Act of 1955.

The stamp is intended to recognize the libraries' role in preserving and extending access to presidential materials while recounting the lives and times of presidents.
