Burnett Library and Learning Center


The Clarksville Area Public Library formally opened on April 8, 1973, moving to its present location in 1986, and expanding initially in 1991. The library recently further expanded into an adjacent building, re-opening as the Burnett Library and Learning Center on July 16, 2014. The new name of the facility is in honor of the numerous contributions made by John Benjamin “Benjy” Burnett, Jr. and Joan Andrews Burnett over a period of several decades to the Clarksville community.
Open Monday through Saturday with varying hours, this library branch currently serves over 4,400 patrons from Clarksville and the surrounding area. It offers hi-speed internet access, Wi-Fi, copy and fax services, and maintains over 26,000 bar-coded titles, including best sellers, audios, periodicals and DVDs.
