Clarkdale Library Celebrates Grand Re-Opening and 90th Birthday

CLARKDALE, AZ- Closed since July 1st, Clark Memorial Library (CML) will once again open its doors to the public. A grand three-day celebration kicks off on Thursday, October 19, at 10 am with a book sale that is epic, even by CML standards. The Grand Re-opening Ceremony starts at 1pm, and features the Jerome Ukulele Orchestra, Mingus Union Honors Choir, guest speakers, and ends with the ribbon-cutting, birthday cake and ice cream.

Library District Director Corey Christians stated, “This grand re-opening and 90th anniversary is the culmination of many months of work between the Yavapai County Free Library District, the Town of Clarkdale and the Friends of the Clark Memorial Library. District 3 Supervisor Randy Garrison played a key role in making this proposal a reality. Partnerships such as this one are a keystone of effective government. The public demand to reinstate library services played the key role in reinvigorating this community landmark of 90 years. The community of Clarkdale should be proud of their civic commitment and participation.

”Fun and exciting activities for kids, book lovers and the whole community include:

Thursday 10am – 8pm: Book Sale in the auditorium

Thursday 1pm – 3pm: Grand Re-Opening Ceremony & Birthday Celebration

Thursday 4-6: Meet the author

Thursday 7pm: Grand Raffle Prize Drawing
