part of the community
The Stanton Public Library has been a part of the community since 1941. The library was first housed at 416 Broad Avenue, then moved to the former bank building on Broad Avenue in 1945, and to its current location at 501 Elliott Street, on May 6, 2014. A human chain formed from the older to the present location, and books were passed hand-to-hand in a community-wide event, that made each person feel an important part of the new library.
The library has books, puzzles, DVD’s, and computers for all ages. The computer lab is the most populated location in the library.
The library hosts a summer reading program and story hour for children as well as Round-table meetings, legion events, book signings, and an annual ice cream social.
New additions to the Stanton Library include a suite of electronic resources from the State Library. These resources include a complete language learning system with flexible learning paths to over 100 languages.
Shelley Anderson is the director of the library. The library is open to the public during the following hours:
- Monday: 1:00pm-5:00pm
- Tuesday: 9:00am-11:00am, 2:00pm-5:00pm
