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

Exciting News!

“Pardon Our Dust”

The Friends of the Clinton Township Library are excited to announce OUR BOOK SALE IS EXPANDING! The Clinton Library Board and Director have generously offered us more space in the basement.  It’s a LOT more space.  The expectation is we will no longer need to haul books upstairs for the Fall Festival Book Sale. Yea!!!

Some of our many goals for the sale area expansion:

  • A larger Children’s area

  • A space for an ongoing bag sale (bargains galore!)

  • A Rare, Vintage & Interesting Book area

  • More space for Paperbacks (hopefully on shelves!)

  • More space for all Fiction categories

  • An improved checkout space

As this expansion occurs over the coming months, a lot of planning, organizing and hard work will be taking place behind the scenes (mostly).  You may notice some changes at our monthly book sales.  We intend to offer our regular First Saturday of the Month every month, despite the work being done to accomplish the expansion.

If all goes according to our preliminary timeline (you know what they say about best laid plans?), we will add a large bag sale to our regular sale for a few months (perhaps May, June and July) to help in the final shifting and placing of shelves.

Please be patient and excuse any dust and disorganization while we expand.  We promise you’ll like the new bookroom!

       Saturday sales are held from 10:00am to 2:00pm

Book Donations

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!

          Please do not put donations in the library drop box.  The library drop box is strictly for library book                  returns. 

  2.  Donations are limited to four (4) boxes or six (6) paper grocery bags per drop off.

Note: Banker or copy paper size boxes are recommended.  Please do not fill huge boxes that cannot be lifted by an average 70 year old woman.

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