For more than five years, Arkansans have helped libraries across the state to collect thousands of sweaters in the memory of Fred Rogers’ neighborly spirit. Won’t you help a neighbor and help continue this outstanding legacy?

This November, you can join AETN, participating libraries, the Arkansas Salvation Army and local Arkansas charities as we collect new and gently used sweaters and winter clothing for the 2019 Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Sweater Drive.

Last year, Arkansans donated more than 3,000 sweaters for neighbors in need and, as cold weather sets in, we hope to collect sweaters and clothing items to reach even more of those in our communities.

  • Alma Public Library.
  • Arkansas River Valley Regional Library Headquarters (Dardanelle).
  • Arkansas State Library (Little Rock).
