Clarkesville Habersham Library

Our Mission

The Clarkesville-Habersham Library’s mission is to provide materials and services to help community residents obtain information meeting their personal, educational, and professional needs. We especially recognize our responsibility to serve as a place for children of all ages and ethnic backgrounds by creating an environment to nurture life-long readers and allow imaginations to roam free.

Collection and Services

The Clarkesville-Habersham County Library houses a collection of more than 40,000 items available for check-out; including best-selling fiction, DVD and VHS movies, audio books, music, and large print books. The library provides free access to the internet through our public computer terminals and Wi-Fi capability, and free access to a wide selection of print and online periodicals. In addition, we offer copy, fax and laminating services for a nominal fee.

Our genealogy collection is located in the new Heritage Room, and contains a wealth of resources for patrons who are researching their family histories. The Heritage Room’s collection includes a thorough assembly of marriage, birth and death certificates, obituaries, the federal census index, cemetery directories, and property records from Habersham and surrounding counties dating to antebellum times. The resources are available through a variety of media including newspaper clippings, microfilm/microfiche, pension record books, Cherokee Indian rolls, state and county history books, City of Clarkesville directories, journals, maps, and family histories bound either in book form or collected in three-ring binders.
