BASE, Books for Arkansas Students' Education, is an innovative program to provide free books about Arkansas' natural, cultural, and political history to public high schools across the state. The Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) and the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies developed BASE for media specialists and teachers in all Arkansas public high schools. Schools have been allotted points, based on their school district's economic need, with which to buy BASE books. When the purchaser has chosen his or her volumes CALS will ship them to the school. The school pays no money for this service, which is funded by donations to BASE.
