The new South Branch of the Clinton-Macomb Public Library has unlikely origins. A vacant building formerly occupied by a video store and billiard hall was located less than 800 feet from the existing library branch. Since the existing branch was in a cramped space and was leased - not owned - by the library, this nearby vacant building was seen as the perfect location for a replacement library. The property was purchased by the library board and the building was transformed into a beautiful new community asset.

The new library features plenty of natural light, a children's area, private and open reading areas, and has flexible and plentiful seating options throughout. A popular teen area, 21-station computer lab, large meeting room (with a capacity of 132) and small group study rooms are also featured.

The 20,000 square foot facility includes 350,000 pieces in its collection, and offers a drive-up service, an automated book check-in and sortation system, Wi-Fi, plentiful USB ports throughout, an E-Book station and 39 public computers. The library also features a laptop lounge/cafe and space for a future media studio.

Unique curved ceiling panels add dimension to the space, as well as necessary acoustical properties. Local artists were commissioned by Friends of the Library to create a suspended sculpture made of hand-blown glass. Titled "Soaring," the sculpture depicts birds in flight, and was installed in a prime location above a centralized "s-shaped" seating area adjacent to the reference desk.
