World Book Night! The Clinton Public Library will once again host World Book Night activities on April 23 from 5 to 7 p.m. where we will give away free books to people of all ages who stop in to ask for one. CPL is also pleased to partner with members of the community who designated this library as their pick-up location. Thanks to these givers, Clinton Public Library is the No. 1 individual library in the country with 41 givers signed up to get their boxes of books here.
