Curbside CMPL
All Clinton-Macomb Public Library buildings are currently closed to in-person visits. We are operating in curbside mode. The safety of you, our staff and families remain the top priority as we continue to navigate the challenges of COVID-19. We apologize for the inconvenience and will regularly evaluate the situation so we can reopen as soon as safely possible. While appointments are necessary for item pick up at the Main Library and North Branch, you may simply use the drive-up window at the South Branch at any time. We are also available to assist you via phone or email during regular hours. Read on for more information:

• Library card accounts, pickup appointments, overdue fines -
• Reading recommendations, hold requests, reference/homework questions and program registration -
• For assistance via phone call (586) 226-5000

Place items on hold as usual. You will be notified when a hold item has become available. If your item is at the Main Library or North Branch schedule a curbside pickup appointment. If your item is at the South Branch use the drive-up window at any time during regular hours.

Return items via the external book returns. Fines may be paid online via your library card account.

We do not have the physical space to accept donations at this time. 

The library’s free Wi-Fi extends into the parking lots; social distancing should be maintained.
