The perfect Picasso-themed paint night, updates coming to Springdale Public Library, and Fayetteville's plans for new school boundaries.
Springdale Public Library Announces $1.1M Renovation Project
Springdale Public Library recently announced plans for a $1.1m renovation project, enclosing its outdoor space to provide more event space.
Bring It In: The renovation will enclose the library’s 3,000 sq. ft. outdoor activities space, providing room for community events without impeding other areas of the library. The library’s bathrooms will also see a complete remodel.
Gathering Space: Enclosing the space will allow for year-round use, which library director Anne Gresham envisions could be used for robotics tournaments, cooking classes, and more by nonprofits, student groups, and other community organizations.
Renovations are expected to start this fall. Learn more HERE.

Girl Math vs. Banking: Join a hilarious conversation about the tenets of Girl Math like “If I return something, I’m making money” or “If I pay for something in cash, it’s free” — what begins as a fun conversation about a TikTok trend is really a great reflection on the psychology of how we view spending money.

Fayetteville School Board Considers New Junior High Location And Boundary Adjustments
The Fayetteville School Board has identified land for the relocation of Woodland Junior High as part of a proposal to establish new boundaries and alleviate overcrowding in the city’s public schools.
Growing Out: Under the current proposal, Fayetteville would introduce a third junior high. Woodland Jr. High might be relocated to a 28-acre property off E. Joyce Blvd., John L. Colbert Middle School would transition into a junior high, and there is a possibility of relocating Ramay Jr. High.
Let’s Stick Together: The changes would involve drawing new boundaries aimed at creating a “feeder pattern,” which would enable students to remain together from elementary through high school and help achieve a more balanced demographic distribution across the school district.
Final decisions are expected in March. Read more about the plans in the Fayetteville Flyer HERE.
