History of M-C Community Library
In August 1985, a joint community committee submitted a Library Service and Construction Act Grant. Matching monies were received from the M-C School District, Cleghorn Public Library, Kinney-Lindstrom Foundation at Mason City, Iowa, individuals, businesses, and service organizations.

Plans were drawn for a 72′ X 44′ brick building on the southeast corner of the school property. Construction began in April, 1986, and was completed in September of 1986. The joint school/public library has a meeting room with kitchenette, movable shelving, storage room, librarian work area and is handicap accessible.

A 28E Agreement was created in case the M-C School District would dissolve or reorganize. Since the joint school/public was established the M-C School District has reorganized with Marcus creating the Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn Community School District.
