Programs & Events

Clark Memorial Library Is Open for In-Person Service

You can use the computers, browse the shelves, use regular library services, view the current Art in the Clark Exhibit and shop in the Friends’ Book Shop. Regular hours remain the same: Monday through Thursday, 1 pm to 5:30 pm and Friday 8 am to Noon.

If you have never visited Clarkdale’s full-service library, its located in the Town Center, at the corner of Main & Ninth Streets, between the Police Station and the Clubhouse Auditorium and has plenty of parking. 

Our Library Coordinators, Jeff & Mary, order new books and DVDs eleven times a year. They want our library’s collection to reflect your preferences. Please let Jeff or Mary know if there is a book you would like to read so it can be added to the library’s collection.

The Friends of Clark Memorial Library’s Book Shop, located in the library, is open during all library hours. We accept donations of books in good condition to sell in the Book Shop to support the library. We also sponsor Art in the Clark exhibits and other library activities and events.

Clark Memorial Library will again be sponsoring Tai Chi in the Park this fall. The tentative schedule is Tuesdays at 10 am-11am, September 13th-November 29th. More details coming in September.

Our library now has a "Kid's Corner”, a play & learn area, open during all library hours, with fun development materials for young patrons and their parents, gifted by the Friends of Clark Memorial Library.
