Clinton Library Opens Today

 Bill Clinton's presidential library formally opens today in Arkansas.

Clinton says the library is an attempt to get people to believe in each other again, and in the country.

Visitors are greeted at an oval reception area and sent on their way after a visit to a replica of the Oval Office.

In between is a history buff's dream -- artifacts from a collection gathered during Clinton's eight years in the White House.

For seven dollars, visitors can spend a day in the museum and library complex on the south bank of the Arkansas River in downtown Little Rock.

Library director David Alsobrook says two hours ought to let tourists cover everything. Alsobrook says visitors with only an hour to spare should make it a point to see the gifts from foreign leaders.
