The Arkansas Records Catalog is a state-wide project, but its success relies fully upon its numerous participating repositories. The archives, special collections, libraries, historical and genealogical societies, and museums across our state are devoted to providing the public access to their invaluable collections of Arkansas history.

The Saline County Library serves Saline County, Arkansas, which runs 99 miles from point to point. There are two library facilities: Bob Herzfeld Memorial Library in Benton, which serves as the headquarters for the system, and the Mabel Boswell Memorial Library in Bryant. In addition to the library facilities, a 24 hour electronic information center is available through this website with online databases and library services available using your library card number. Staff would be happy to give a guided tour on what is available via the internet. The mission of the Saline County Library is to serve the citizens of Saline County by providing materials, technology, and programs that educate, connect, and entertain. Their Special Collections department holds collections of political memorabilia from Arkansas candidates, historic photographs, and scrapbooks. Their facilities are open from 9:00am to 8:00pm every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday; 9:00am to 5:30pm on Tuesdays and Fridays; and from 9:00am to 4:00pm on Saturdays. The library is closed on Sundays.
