Clay Center Public Library is celebrating the 100th birthday of the building on November 3rd with an open house from 5:00-7:00 p.m.  Clay Center first started a library on January 26, 1910.  The present library was built with a large donation from the Carnegie Corporation and generosity of the citizens of Clay Center.  The building was opened to the public on November 3rd, 1916.

In honor of the 100th year of service a bronze plaque will be placed on the building.  There will be refreshments and  games. Fine forgiveness is available to anyone who asks on this day as a way to say thank you to all who support the continued growth and service of the library.

We are thankful for our library!
