The city of Clay Library Board sets
library policies.

Patrons will find Director Karen
or Assistant Director Joy Lee ready to assist them.


Seven years after a councilwoman mentioned the Jayford Ware house might make a good library, the doors opened in what has become a community treasure. The first day for patrons was October 1, 2009. The collection has expanded greatly since those early days and the services are many.

The Clay Public Library has five public rooms and a hallway full of books. One room is for the adult collection, another is for the juvenile collection, another is for teens and another room has computers for patrons to use. This is a good place for people to bring their laptop and use the library's Wi-Fi service at no charge. The director's room also has audio books and DVDs for rent. A machine is available for making copies and sending faxes for a fee.

In the entranceway, the Clay Historical Society has information of Clay's unique history.
