Friends of the Clinton Township Public Library
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 1 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.

The Friends have compiled a list of some of the more rare and interesting books which are available. Please let us know if you are interested in any of these books by calling 517-456-4141. The list can be seen here.
Book donations are welcomed.
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.
