Greetings from Clark!

Yahoo!  Summer Reading Starts Saturday, June 20!! 

Enjoy great reads, great programs and great activities.  

Engage, connect and grow with us this summer.


 Summer Hours are coming:  Open on Sundays, 11 am – 3 pm.

Closed on Mondays and Fridays.  

June 20 – Aug 16






Starting thsummer-hours-message-signe weekend of June 20 and going through August 16  we will be open on Sundays from 11 am to 3 pm.  We will be closed on Fridays and Mondays.  This temporary change in operational hours allows us to offer matinee movies for adults and teen programming.  It also means that families have greater access to our collections and museum passes during a time of year when school is out and many kids spend full weekdays in camp.  Check us out on a Sunday, starting June 21.


interlibrary-loanAfter Saturday June 26 patrons will notice a difference when requesting interlibrary loans.  This is because the statewide catalog known as Request will no longer be available.  The Interlibrary Loan page will still be available on iConn and we will still work with other libraries to get patron requests filled. Remember as a member of the Libraries Online/LION Consortium we already have direct access to over 30 libraries for all sorts of library items.  Read more…




We want to engage, connect and grow with you on Instagram. Please follow us on Instagram. Why? The library is full of engaging ideas. Sometimes the best way to connect to an idea or to information is visually. When that happens, we grow with you and you with us. By the way, we also have a Facebook page. We use it to post events, information about authors and literature, and as a way of getting feed back from you. To follow us on Instagram, look for bethanylibrary. On Facebook we are Clark Memorial Library. Or, click on the icon for Instagram or the word Facebook.
