The Friends of Clinton Library are dedicated to promoting learning, encouraging reading, and enhancing the Clinton community. We are a non-profit volunteer organization.
The Friends of the Clinton Library was formed in the late 1980s with a desire to have a library in Clinton. The dream was realized in 2000 with the Friends obtaining a building and a mortgage. Thanks to many volunteer hours and generous supporters, the mortgage was paid off in 2008. Today we're striving to promote reading and literacy, and improve library services and materials.
The Friends of Clinton Library raises funds by membership, donations, and a monthly book sale. With these raised funds we contribute to:
The monthly book sale is our major fundraiser. It is held the third Saturday of each month (except December) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Clinton Community Hall. We have thousands of books organized by category. Come support us and visit with your neighbors!
Books in good condition are always appreciated. Damaged or moldy books are not useful; please take them to a recycle center. We do not accept magazines (including Reader's Digest and National Geographic) or encyclopedias. Outdated text books, old dictionaries or old computer books are not saleable. DVDs and CDs are accepted. We do not accept VHS or cassette tapes.
If you have a large collection, please call Marvin at 360-579-3490 for evaluation and pick up.
Note: Morning book sale volunteers get to view the books first and select books to purchase before the sale opens
