About Us


The Roy Downs Memorial Calera Library believes that learning is lifelong and that all people deserve opportunities to pursue learning. Our purpose is to serve by offering educational, informational, cultural, and recreational needs of all the city’s residents. We endeavor to support our community of readers.

To enhance our purpose, we strive to be a dynamic, vital force in the development of our city, to extend services to users and non-users through both traditional and progressive methods, and to maintain a warm, friendly, and people oriented atmosphere.

We are progressively aware, yet small enough to care.
