The University of Arkansas Hope-Texarkana will host a special business after hours reception from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m July 11 at the Rapert Library Complex on the Hope Campus. The event will celebrate the expansion of the first building constructed on the U of A at Hope campus after it joined the University of Arkansas System in 1996. Over the last 20 years, the library has become a landmark for Hempstead County and campus.
"Almost a quarter century ago, our community celebrated the construction of the Rapert Library as the symbol of a partnership between all of us and the University of Arkansas System," UAHT Chancellor Chris Thomason said. "It makes perfect sense that we should all join together again to celebrate the new renovation and expansion of the Rapert Library as a reminder of all that it has made possible since that historic day and the future potential that it promises for our campus and our region."
The public is invited to attend and enjoy snacks and a tour of the library expansion. For more information, call 870-777-5722.
