    CLARK MEMORIAL LIBRARY CELEBRATES 94TH ANNIVERSARY

    with Great Programs all Month Long

    Location: Clarkdale, AZ 

    On October 19, 1927, Clark Memorial Library first opened its doors as part of the original  Clarkdale town plan, funded by a $100,000 bequest from William A. Clark. Now, 94  years later, Clark Memorial Library is celebrating our anniversary with an exciting lineup of events and activities throughout the month of October. We invite the community to visit Clark Memorial Library to celebrate and commemorate our shared library, town,  and Verde Valley history.  

    Join us for the Library Anniversary Celebration, October 19th, 1-5 PM. Explore a special exhibit of early 20th century CML artifacts provided by the Clarkdale  Historical Society and Museum, renew or sign up for a library card, and pick up a free  CML tote bag. Check out a book from our curated selection of materials on Verde  Valley History and grab a kid’s activity book about Clarkdale’s founding!  

    We also invite you to dig into your family history with a genealogy course, learn about the library with kids’ CML Bingo, enjoy kids’ storytime, help us paint a community mural,  and so much more this fall at Clark Memorial Library!
