For the next few weeks we will be highlighting our fabulous LION Catalog system.

Lessons are available between 2:00 & 4:00 PM on Saturdays.

During the Library’s summer children’s program, our young patrons took part in the All Together Now! House-Building Project – starting with identical paper templates and squares of foamboard, they created over thirty unique houses and yards using craft supplies and their imaginations. At the end of the project, we put all the finished houses together into Clarkville: a model town that reflects the creativity and diversity of our full-sized Bethany community. You can take a brief tour of the completed town using the slideshow above! We will be collecting pictures of all the houses in a book that patrons will be able to flip through when they stop by the Children’s Room as well, and possibly even more exhibitions of the results of this amazing program in the future.

Thank you so much to everyone who took part in both the House-Building Project and the summer children’s program as a whole!

July 19th – 29th
The All Together Now! Clarkville House-Building Project
is a Makerspace program for children of all ages.
Participants will build model houses out of paper
and craft materials that will then become part of “Clarkville”!
Take a look at the houses in this model town for inspiration!

Looking for community service hours, or just want to learn a new skill? Clark Memorial Library is partnering with the Warm Up America Foundation to provide warm blankets to those in need. The goal is to create 7″x9″ knit or crocheted squares that can later be joined together to make blankets of various sizes. These squares are a perfect size to practice your needlework! No prior experience is necessary – we will provide instruction and materials. Drop in to work with us on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 2:00 to 5:00 PM in July and August. For ages 10 and up.
