We can’t wait to see you at CLTPL for Spring Break!
In appreciation of our patrons and our community, the Clayton-Liberty Township Public Library is now FINE FREE!
What does that mean for you? Beginning February 11, 2021, any item that you check out from CLTPL will no longer incur an overdue fine if not returned by the due date. Books will still check out for three weeks and can be renewed twice (unless there is a hold on the item). Once the item is past its due date, you will not be charged an overdue fine.
What about the overdue fines I already have on my account? Gone. Buh-bye. The overdue fines from CLTPL have been waived, giving our patrons a fresh start! You may still have overdue fines incurred from other libraries on your account, or fees for lost materials, however. These we cannot waive.
Does that mean I still have to return my books? Yep! It is still important that patrons strive to return their materials by the due date. This allows as many people as possible to enjoy those items as well.
What happens if I don’t return my items at all? Now, when your item becomes overdue for 28 days, it will be considered lost and you will be charged for the replacement cost of the item, plus a $10 processing fee. Also, if you have 15 items overdue from CLTPL, your account will be blocked until some items are returned.
Yikes- I’ve been charged for a lost item and I just found it! What can I do now? When you return the lost item to the library, the lost book charge and the processing fee will be removed from your account.
Are ALL Evergreen Libraries now fine free? No, which means if you have checked out items at another Evergreen library, that library may still charge you an overdue fine. Keep an eye on your due dates! Patron accounts must be below $10 to continue to check out items. Patrons may pay fines and fees at any Evergreen library.

Due to inclement weather, the library will close at 1pm today, Monday, Feb. 15th.
The librarians have been weeding the collection and we will have tons of books for sale in the Community Room from January 28 - February 9th, during regular library hours.
This is a great opportunity to own some of your favorite titles or authors!
The sale will mostly include gently-used children’s and adult fiction, paperbacks, and some large print items.
Books will be 25 cents each - cash only, please.
Bring your own bag(s) and we hope to see you at the book sale!
As of January 1, 2021, all CLTPL patrons will have access to the Encyclopaedia Britannica database!
There are three levels of the database: children, young adult, and reference (adult).
Using Britannica for research will provide patrons with articles, images, videos, quality websites, primary sources and related ebooks on the search topic. Students and researchers will also be able to access the citation (MLA, APA, Chicago, or Harvard Style) for articles, images, videos and primary sources used in research.
For over 250 years, Encyclopaedia Britannica has been a trusted source of information- and it’s now available 24/7 at your fingertips!
Go to the Links page of our website and select “Resources”. Once you click on the Encyclopaedia Britannica link, you’ll need to enter in your library card number for access.
