Features restored and introduced

  • Newspapers and magazines to peruse in-library

    CML’s antique, solid oak magazine rack was located and restored to the library. You’ll now find it filled with current issues of The New York Times, The Arizona Republic, and The Verde Independent, as well as National Geographic’s History magazine, The Atlantic, AARP, Smithsonian, Mother Jones, and WebMD, plus various issues of magazines donors thought might be of interest, such as Arizona Highways, Country Gardens, The New Yorker, and Sunset Magazine.

  • More powerful state-of-the-art computers

    Equipped with Full HD monitors and MS Office productivity software.

  • card catalog image
  • Wannabe seed bank and crafts materials dispensary

    The Clarkdale Historical Society returned this beautiful antique card catalog to CML, where it belongs. It now needs a volunteer horticulturist to stock it with seeds patrons can check out, plant, harvest, and share. Could you be the one? Talk to the Library Coordinator.

  • Notary Public

    Patrons can now have documents notarized without charge.

  • New books and DVD/Blu-ray videos

    A growing selection, with the most recent arrivals on the shelves in front of the check-out counter. Tell the Library Coordinator if there is something missing you would like to see.

  • Storytime, Summer Reading & Continuing Education Programs

    Intended for students in grades 3–5, the 2018 Summer Reading pilot program featured geology, paleontology and archaeology reading assignments augmented with demonstrations and activities. Future programs will be designed to make continuing education fun for patrons of all ages.

More to come

Programs and events for school kids and adults are in the works, along with support for local book and video clubs.
