Library Information

Strong support from this economically and racially mixed community brought the branch into being in 1974. The Society for Clinton Hill, which met regularly at the library, gave impetus to the formation of the Friends of Clinton Hill Library.

The branch is currently accepting donations of books and DVD's during operating hours to sell in its fall Friends of Clinton Hill Library book sale. Book and DVD Donations will be accepted through Monday, October 20th. Toy donations will be accepted only on the day of the sale.

The Friends of Clinton Hill Library Book, Bake, and Toy Sale will be from 10 AM to 4 PM on                         Saturday, November 1st - rain or shine!
