About the Library
The Happy Camp Library started as a reading room in the Cuddihy Hotel, which still stands on the corner of Second Ave and Indian Creek Road. The library was eventually relocated to the old County Jail at the corner of East Street and Fourth Ave. With property donated to the Happy Camp Library Association, a library building was constructed (about 1965) by town organizations, businesses, and local individuals, with donated materials and labor. This is our present building located on Buckhorn Road.
The Annual Library Street Fair is held the first weekend in October and is one of our main fundraisers. The Library Friends have a donated "Book Sale", gently used Yard Sale items and raffle tickets. Other vendors rent space and sell food, baked goods, hand-crafted items, photographs, plants, jewelry, art works and many more treasures. Many local musicians play music throughout the day. We hope to make this a great local event.
During the late Fall the library has its annual "Bloom for the Library" daffodil sale, in which we ask you to plant the bulbs in our public spaces so that when they bloom in the Spring, all will be reminded to "think Library".
