About the Clark Memorial Library

From left to right, Clarkdale Mayor Doug von Gausig, Vice Mayor Richard Dehnert, YCFLD Director Corey Christians, YC Supervisor Randy Garrison, and Friends of CML President Jimmy Salmon combine their strength to close the scissors that cut the ribbon to officially reopen Clark Memorial Library, while an ecstatic throng of library lovers record the event.
Much has been accomplished since the ribbon was cut at Clark Memorial Library’s 90th Birthday Grand Re-opening Celebration.

Transition from a historic Clarkdale Town Library to a historic Yavapai County Free Library District Branch Library went without a hitch (three cheers for Third District Supervisor Randy Garrison, YCFLD Director Corey Christians, Assistant Library Director & County Librarian Susan Lapis, the District’s staff, Clarkdale Town Manager Gayle Mabery, and all the Town staff who aided in the seamless transfer!).

The 2018 Summer Reading Pilot Program was informative and instructive.

Former Library Coordinator Jeff King shared his geological, paleontological, and archeological knowledge with some bright and receptive students.

This six-session class was much more than a series of reading assignments. Attendees engaged in hands-on experiments and exercises that included rock, fossil, and artifact identification, a simulated archeological dig, and local Indian crafts demonstrated by a National Park Service ranger.

What's Inside...

Compact and cozy, but big on features!
