Friends of the Clinton Township Public Library

About the

The Friends of the Clinton Township Public Library was established in 1987 to promote and aid the library and its programs. To raise money, the Friends hold used book sales.  The Friends generally meet on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 4 pm in the library's meeting room. Anyone interested in supporting the library is welcome and invited to become a Friend of the Library.

Membership is $5.00 per year for an individual/couple/family; or a $100 lifetime payment. This can be dropped off at the library, attention Friends of CTPL. 

Book Sales

Our First Saturday of the Month Book Sales Are Back!!!

The Friends of Clinton Township Public Library are thrilled to announce the return of our First Saturday Book Sales!  Our book sales will be held from 10:00am to 2:00pm the first Saturday of the month.  No appointment or sign up necessary! 

 Even though many of us are vaccinated (and boosted), the amazing ability to spread the Omicron variant of Covid has caused CDC to recommend all people (whether vaccinated or not) wear a mask when indoors - particualarly in crowded settings.  Following that advice, We ask that all shoppers wear a mask to protect themselves and others.  Please maintain reasonable social distancing. In the past our First Saturday Book Sales drew the most shoppers between 10:00am and 11:00am.  We recommend shoppers space themselves out throughout the sale hours.  Afternoon really is the best time for browsing!  We do not expect occupancy limits to be a problem, but if necessary, we will require people to wait if the book room becomes too crowded.  We continue to be serious about protecting both our valued shoppers and dedicated Friends volunteers.  We thank you for your understanding and patience.  We hope our shopping environment will allow even the most cautious reader to feel safe and welcome. 

Over the past year, we have received many wonderful donations.    Our shelves and displays are filled with books to interest all readers.  We are excited to hold our regular sales once again.  Please mark your calendars on the First Saturday of each month.  We look forward to seeing you at the Clinton Library Book Sale!

Please Note:  At this time, payment at the book sale must be cash or check.  We are unable to process credit/debit cards.

Book donations are welcomed.

  1. Donations of gently used books are needed and appreciated.  They are the lifeblood of our monthly book sales!  Donations may be dropped off when the library is open. Just bring them to the front desk or ask the staff for a cart (we try to leave an empty cart on the elevator.) Library hours are Monday - Thursday 11 am to 7 pm, Friday 11 am - 6 pm and Saturday 10 am - 2 pm.  If you have questions about donating books, the library's phone number is 517-456-4141.

Note:  Please do not leave donations outside the front door.  Wet or weather damaged books make us cry!

The Friends and CTPL staff greatly appreciate your generous donations of gently used books and puzzles.
