The Central Arkansas Library System and the North Little Rock Public Library System have partnered to create the Rock, Paper, Run 5K to celebrate Library Card Sign-up Month. This family fun run/walk 5K will connect the two library systems beginning in North Little Rock, leaving from the steps of the William F. Laman Library, 2801 Orange Street, and ending at the Main Library, 100 Rock Street, Little Rock. Following the race, a Library Card Sign-up Cool Down party will take place at Library Square. Runners and spectators are encouraged to dress up as their favorite book characters.
Trolley service will run from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. providing free rides between Laman Library and Main Library for anyone who has parked at the race start and needs transportation back to their vehicle.
Pre-orders for shirts ends August 18. A limited number of shirts and registrations will be available the day of the event.
