A City of Cle Elum Library was created by an ordinance from City Council almost 100 years ago. Thirty years ago a bequest was made by the Carpenter family, a new library was built and it was renamed the Carpenter Memorial Library. Today the library houses a cornucopia of items available for checkout. We also have computers with Internet access and a special collection of northwest books. Stop in and see what today’s library has in store for you.
