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 next Friends of Clinton Hill Library Open Meeting will be on Wednesday, March 25th from 6:30 to 7:30 PM. Both new and old members are welcome!

The Friends of Clinton Hill Second Annual Cat Contest received nearly a dozen entries. The three winners, selected by the votes of 145 cat-loving Clinton Hill branch visitors are:

1st place - Sunny Bones

2nd place - Skittles

3rd place - Baby

These lucky cats and their people will be receiving their prizes shortly. Photos of the winners are on display in the Clinton Hill branch.

The Clinton Hill branch is no longer accepting book or DVD donations. Please check back in 2015 for the date of the next book sale and donation acceptance period.
