A window display saluting the Clintonville Public Library is featured in the Clintonville Area Historical Societies’ Offices at 36 Main Street. The display has been placed in honor of the 25th Anniversary of the Libraries’ Friends organization.
The window, prepared by sisters Mary-Beth Kuester and Kay Kuester Doran, features photos, articles, books and other memorabilia from the Library’s History including a list of the librarians who have served, photos of past library locations and awards received by the Library.
