The Clemmons Branch Library opened last Thursday with no fanfare and no announcements, and with the library staff still putting things in place. On Thursday, there were books waiting to be put on shelves and tables to be assembled.  Some furniture had not yet arrived and the auditorium was being used for storage. James Govern, head librarian for Clemmons, said that the library currently has 10,000 volumes.

Two major road improvements are planned for the Clemmons area according to local transportation officials, who say that U.S. Hwy. 158 will be widened to three lanes from Lewisville-Clemmons Road to Stadium Drive in the spring of next year, and that a traffic light will be installed at the intersection of U.S. Hwy. 158 and Jonestown and West Clemmonsville Road.
