This beautiful Carnegie Library was originally built in 1909 and has been updated several times and is now serving Clinton, IN and surrounding communities. As you come through the front doors there is a large open room with a balcony. There is a beautiful large circulation desk where staff greet each person that comes in. On this level are several public internet computers some some of which are designated as testing computers. There is a comfortable seating area with tables near the newspapers and magazine section. The Adult Fiction, New book display and Friends of the Library sale books are on this level. The balcony area is accessible by stairs and elevator and contains the Adult Non-fiction, Biographies and Large Print collections. Tables and chairs for reading, working or study along with two typewriters are available on this level.
The Young Adults have a room set aside on the second floor where they have computers and materials of interest to them. The Children’s Department is being remodeled and is currently sharing space on the balcony level but will be re-opened very soon. The Summer Reading Program is continuing while the work is being completed.
There are three fully equipped meeting rooms and a small study/conference room open to the public and a Genealogy/Local History Department. This library is working hard to reach its community.
