The Clearfield Branch Library, finished in 2021, is the newest in the Davis County System, replacing the old North Branch Library which was built in 1975. The new library at 1 North Main in Clearfield is located in the heart of Clearfield and offers a reliable and safe environment for patrons of all ages, especially children. Due to the location, this branch also makes the most of the reciprocal borrowing agreement between Davis and Weber County, benefiting patrons from both systems.
This new branch offers a well rounded collection of materials that includes books, audio books, films, music, magazines, a well-defined children’s area with a courtyard and, a first for Davis County, specialized technology that is not available at other locations. Some of the technology available is a 3-D printer, Adobe Creative Suite, and One Button Studio. Laptops, tablets, conversion equipment, and cameras are available for use in the building as well as to checkout. In addition to the new technology, the branch still offers wi-fi throughout the building and internet computers both up and downstairs for public use.
With multiple spaces for meetings and study, the branch offers two large conference rooms that seat 8-10, three small “flex spaces'' that convert to a larger program/study space, a large multi-purpose room with a piano that seats 125, and many areas to just sit, relax, and reflect. At just under 14,000 square feet the branch offers service on two floors and features artwork by not only notable Utah artist Tony Rasmussen, but also original artwork by several up and coming local artists including Mac Stevenson, David J. Crowther, B.J. Jensen, and John Huerta Jr. With high ceilings and a stunning staircase as the focal point, this branch serves as an anchor to the community and celebrates the closeness of Hill Air Force Base with design cues meant to celebrate flight.
