About the Library:

The current McCleary Library opened in 2003 as a result of a joint project of the City of McCleary, Timberland and the Friends of the McCleary Library. The current 2112 square foot building was formerly a video store which was remodeled and expanded to provide more space for materials, computers, and programs. The old building had been Timberland's smallest library at just over 600 square feet. 

The City of McCleary contracted for library service from TRL in 1969 and annexed to the district in 1982. The McCleary library was closed December 1985 and the McCleary Book Nook was established. The Book Nook, which was run by volunteers, was not a full service library and served as a convenient access and referral point to the full range of TRL's resources and services. A full service library was reopened February 1988.
