LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock is closing its permanent exhibits to walk-in visitors because of the federal government shutdown.

Clinton’s presidential library is part of the National Archives system and is affected by the partial shutdown that began Tuesday. Officials say permanent exhibits at the library and museum will be closed during the shutdown.

Previously scheduled school and group tours will be honored. The library says a symposium on Bosnia featuring former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright will continue as planned Tuesday.

A student workshop scheduled for Wednesday will also be held.

The University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service will remain open, along with the Clinton Museum Store and the center’s on-site restaurant, Forty Two.
