Interested in supporting the library through volunteering and fundraising?
Join our Friends of the Library Group!
We recently received permission from the City of Craigmont to move the library across the street to 113 W. Main. This is a big project and we welcome all new members that would be willing to help us move forward and reach our goal.
We have one major fundraiser a year, our Books & Bites Sale on the 1st Saturday in May in conjunction with the City-Wide Yard Sale. This year the sale will be located in our new location at 113 W Main, on Saturday, May 4th!
We are always accepting gently used books for our annual sale and all donations.
Craigmont Community Library is partnering with Partnership for Healthy Communities

New library progress continues!
The Friends of the Craigmont Community Library, after receiving the okay from the City of Craigmont, have already started preparations in the new location by removing the teller stations and making plans for new bookcases and computer stations. The new library location will have areas for an expanded general collection, children’s section, and computer stations, as well as a multipurpose meeting room.
The Friends’ group has recently received a generous donation of $10,000 to kick off their fundraiser for the new library location.
