20th Anniversary

In 2020 we are celebrating our 20th anniversary!

The Clive Public Library opened its doors to the public on October 2, 2000, with approximately 14,000 items available for checkout. However, the library staff was here for three months before we opened. When staff first arrived the library was an empty shell of rooms: no shelves, no books and no supplies. The first staff had to start from the ground beginning by ordering pencils and other office supplies they would need before they were able to even start tackling shelving and computers.

Join us in 2020 for our 20th anniversary celebration year, and we indeed have much to celebrate. Our staff is busy creating events to recognize this milestone as we acknowledge the past and anticipate a bright future.
