About Us:

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. Director Marilyn Walden and members of the Arcanum library have left areas of this beautiful home intact for visitors to enjoy.

Small town library with a big selection. While my friends were on waitlist at their libraries for a very popular new book- Arcanum had a copy! They had even already checked it out for me when I went in to get it. Love our Library!
