Hillary Clinton reveals a campaign-ready hair style at the dedication of an Arkansas children's library in her name 

The library in Little Rock honoring Bill Clinton's presidency is no longer the only one bearing the family name. Hillary Rodham Clinton has a library in the Arkansas capital to call her own: The Hillary Rodham Clinton Children's Library and Learning Center.

Hillary Clinton revealed a perfectly-coiffed new haircut on Monday at the opening of a library dedicated in her name.

The new 'do, which is shorter than her last cut with a crop of fresh layers and side-swept bangs, is a signal to some that Clinton is refining a presidential style ahead of the 2016 election.

The former secretary of state revealed her updated look in Little Rock, Arkansas at the dedication of Hillary Rodham Clinton Children's Library, which attracted more than a thousand patrons, including her husband, former President Bill Clinton.

Dressed in a bright purple pantsuit, Clinton read ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ to a group of children during the ceremony.

She also took a tour of the facility and finished with a press conference .
Bobby Roberts, director of the state’s library system, told public radio station UALR that the Hillary Clinton library is a ‘great fit.’The library opened in March.

Clinton's hair has been a hot topic in recent months, as political commentators track her every move for any sign that she is planning a run for president. 

Her new look adds more layers and volume to her last cut, which she debuted in late March. That haircut was more drastic, as she chopped off her longer, flatter locks for a bouncier, above-the-shoulders look.

New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd wrote in early April that the cut was a clear signal of her intention to run for president in 2016.

'She has ditched the skinned-back bun that gave her the air of a K.G.B. villainess in a Bond movie and has a sleek new layered cut that looks modern and glamorous,' Dowd wrote. 

Clinton has made jokes recently about the media's obsession with her hair and clothing styles. But she doesn't shy away from the attention.

Her pantsuits have been put on display at the William J. Clinton Presidential Center in Arkansas, where the Clintons met with one of her suits' designers, Oscar de la Renta, on Monday.

The temporary exhibit, ‘Oscar de la Renta: American Icon,’ runs through December 1.

It showcases outfits worn by first ladies and Hollywood stars, from the former secretary of state to actress Anne Hathaway.
