The Clifton Library is a branch of the Wayne County Library, which is located in Waynesboro.   The Clifton Library opened in the fall of 1996 in the T.S. Stribling home.   The house is now devoted to the Stribling Museum.   The library has several of Mr. Stribling's writings, some of which are available for checkout. People of all ages use the library, and there is something here for just about everyone, so please feel free to stop by and check it out!


The library has an ongoing book sale to raise money for supplies and materials. We have a varied selection of paperbacks available for 10 cents each or 12 for $1.00. There are hardcovers available as well which are usually $1.00 each, with prices varying based on the condition of the books. Different books are added to the sale rack frequently, so don't pass up an opportunity to support your local library and get a great deal on some reading materials! (Monetary donations and donated materials are always gratefully accepted.)
