Public Library

The Arcanum Public Library embodies a comprehensive and useful range of research tools and resources for everyone. Whether your motivation is learning or simple enjoyment, children and adults alike will find suitable and comfortable areas within the walls of this charming library.

The Arcanum Public Library was once the home of the Ivester family. The Ivester House was built in 1874 by George Ivester. The Arcanum Public Library moved into this location in 1963 and has since experienced renovations and additions. Quite impressively, the original home of the Ivesters is well maintained and cared for. Directory Marilyn Walden and members of the Arcanum library have left areas of this beautiful home intact for visitors to enjoy.
