To be announced...
Exhibits are on view throughout the Clark Memorial Library during normal library hours. Some pieces may be offered for sale by the artists.
Art in the Clark exhibitions by Verde Valley artists are curated by Clarkdale artist Jenny Emminger. Art in the Clark was created by the late Mary Liggit, a Founding Friend of Friends of Clark Memorial Library, in conjunction with CML’s Library Coordinator. “Seasons” run from November – October because Mary initiated Art in the Clark in November 2017 following the 90th birthday reopening of CML on October 19.

“Those aren't the books you're looking for.”
The 200,000 oldest books collection housed in the impressive Long Room at Trinity College Library in Dublin, Ireland, includes manuscripts dating back to the 9th-century Book of Kells, but you won't be able to check them out. Better to “move along, move along” to Clark Memorial Library at 39 N 9th St in Clarkdale, Arizona, where over 700,000 unique items are available through the Yavapai Library Network. ‘The Clark’ is a cozy little public library with plenty of current and classic videos, a growing collection of Southwest-oriented books, and displays by local artists…plus easy access with plenty of parking. CML is not likely to appear in a Star Wars episode as the Long Room did (disguised as the Jedi Archives in Episode II), but its patrons have no problem with its unpretentiousness.
