The people you see at the grocery are the same people you see visiting our library because in Clayton, knowledge is as essential as milk and bread! Through educational programs for all ages, including the Summer Reading Program, year-round book clubs and Story Times... the members of the Clayton community are connecting with their neighbors. Come meet our staff, explore our extensive history collections, join us for special events... all within the hand-painted walls of the Hocutt-Ellington Memorial Library in downtown Clayton.
