Artwork Drawing Visitors to Randolph County Library

POCAHONTAS, AR (KAIT) - The Randolph County Library has some interesting artwork to show off.

The story center in the children's department of the library has a new look, including a mural that is the work of Bonnie Davis. It displays many children's stories within it.

Three Blind Mice, Little Bo Peep and several other stories can be found painted on the walls.

Library director Jackie Salyards says the point is to get children to read. "For June and July, our circulation was up over two thousand books per month that the kids were checking out," says   Director Salyards.

Salyards says the project began in March and it's an on going project with more painting still yet to be done!
