YOUR LIBRARY CARD
In order to protect the privacy of our patrons and because we have some new faces working the front desk, please remember to bring your library card when you are checking out. Thank you!
For the safety of our community, the Clinton Township Public Library continues to require masks for all patrons entering our building regardless of vaccination status. This decision was made based on information provided by the Illinois Department of Public Health and recommendations by the CDC. We will reassess the situation again in October 2021.
Patrons who are unable to wear a mask may request material via curbside pickup and/or check out our digital library resources such as Axis360 and Libby.
We appreciate the continued patience of all of our patrons!
