Used Book Sales (throughout the year)
The Friends of the Clinton-Macomb Public Library host two large-scale book sales each year at the Main Library but did you also know that you can get used books in between sales? The Friends supply the Used Book Nook at the Main Library with copies of the best of the donations. You can get a great deal on used books and book bundles at the Used Book Nook.
The Friends of the Clinton-Macomb Public Library are always on the lookout for volunteers to assist with setting up and working at the used book sale. If you are interested in volunteering with the Friends of the Library, please call (586) 226-5004 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
