Welcome the Town of Clayton, North Carolina

Our doors may be closed because of COVID-19, but we still want to hold as many programs as we can!
We’re moving some programming online:

  • TEEN MEETINGS: Email Pam for more information about hosting some meetings for our teen and TAB, our teen advisory board. 

We hope to see you online and hear about how you’re doing! Stay tuned for more information and follow us on Facebook and Instagram.


TEEN ADVISORY BOARD (TAB)

Applications for TAB membership open August 3! The deadline for TAB application submission is August 31. Click here for your application.

These middle and high school teens host a number of regular monthly events, special events and contests throughout the year. TAB's mission is to encourage teens to become life-long library members and actively develop, implement and promote teen and community service events in the community.

TAB hosts free programs for teens each month! Follow us @ClaytonLibrary on Instagram and Facebook, grab a calendar of events from the library, or email Pam Taylor for more information.
