We have an Arkansas room with fiction written by Arkansas authors as well as genealogy related to Arkansas especially Yell County. We cannot answer detailed questions over the phone or by mail due to limited staff, but we will be able to assist you best when you visit us. We have the Yell County Historical Society which may be able to offer further genealogical help if needed. We have some rare Arkansas works which do not circulate. We have 6 branch libraries located in Paris (Logan Co.), Clarksville (Johnson Co.), Ozark(Franklin Co), Charleston (Franklin Co.), Booneville (Logan Co.), Danville (Yell Co.). All are in Arkansas. We run an outreach Bookmobile system which serves rural communities in the four counties. We have been running it for over 40 years. I can personally take questions about our system on my home email: vorwerk@mail.cswnet
