Since opening in its current home 12 years ago, the Bentonville Public Library's physical collections have grown 120%. To properly store its 143,760 items, the library is installing additional shelving this week.
In 1977, the Bentonville Public Library moved into the old Massey Hotel in downtown. In 2006, the library moved into a new 38,000 square-foot facility on Main Street. Starting Saturday, the library has planned a week of events to celebrate its 10th anniversary in its current location.
