About the Library
The McCloud Library was established to meet the reading needs and interest of a company town. Services to outlying camps were also requested and provided. The McCloud River Lumber Company provided space for the " McCloud Club Library", which was established in 1906, in the McCloud Hotel. In 1925, the Lumber Company accepted a County Library offer for them to participate in the countywide program. They still provided a space in their hotel, plus a library "custodian" (meaning librarian not janitor) and some books. The county library provided additional books, plus access to interlibrary loan and mail delivery of materials. In 1966 , the McCloud Services District entered into a contract with the McCloud Hotel owner to continue library services at that location. On July 27, 1974, the current McCloud Library was dedicated.The branch which has 1248 sq. ft. still provides a somewhat small but adequate and pleasant facility for the approx. 1500 residents of the town.
