About

The Clintonville library began in 1884 when Pastor A.C. Newcomb of the Congregation Church in Clintonville bought several “Pansy Books” for the girls in his Sunday school class to read. After the books had been read and reread, one of the students suggested that each member of the class donate a book or a dollar to purchase another book. Interest was so great that non-class members also made contributions. In 1905, the Clintonville Common Council appropriated $200 for the support of a public library on the condition that the Christian Endeavor Society donate its library of about 800 books to the City. A new Carnegie library building was dedicated in 1917 and housed the Clintonville Public Library until the current building opened its doors to the public in 1992.
