Friends of the Library

Who are the Friends of the Clinton Public Library?

The Friends are people just like you who are dedicated to helping their community library.  They promote, advocate, and raise money for the library.  Benefits of being a Friend include early entry into the annual Book Sale in the spring and voting privileges.

When do the Friends meet?

The Friends of the Clinton Public Library Board meets monthly on the first Tuesday of each month at 10:00 a.m. in the library. We cordially invite all Friends members to attend!

How do I join?

For a small donation of $5.00 to $10.00, you can become a member of the Friends.  Stop by the library for a registration form; it’s that easy!  All the money raised goes directly towards improving the library.  Or for more information, please call Peggy Laxton at 269-4649 or email her at

How do I make a donation to the Friends through a memorial?

Donations to the Friends are often made as memorials. These memorials are bittersweet because we mourn the loss of family and friends, yet the memory of their dedication to their community continues through the efforts of those they leave behind. For more information or to make a donation, please contact Peggy Laxton at 865-269-4649 or the Library at 865-457-0519.
