Dear Authors and Attendees,

It has come to our attention that there are some structural issues with our beloved building that affects the stairs and elevator.  These issues need to be addressed sooner, rather than later, and construction will be starting in July and continue through August. Therefore, we feel that it is in everyone’s best interests to cancel the 2018 Clinton Book Festival.

We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding. Please feel free to contact us at or call the library 563-242-8441 with any questions.

Any author that has already paid their registration will receive a full refund and can expect a check in the mail in June or July. If you are interested in coming to the library for individual author programs or workshops, please let us know. Thank you and we look forward to hosting you again in the future.


We hope everyone has a wonderful summer,


The Book Festival Committee
