Friends of the Library

Friends LogoSince 2007 members of the Friends of the Commerce Township Community Library have come together in support our community’s Library. To join, click here to download the membership application and either mail it or bring it to the Library. Applications are also available at the Library. 

In addition to supporting the Library, members are invited to Friends’ Night. You will have first choice of the many items available at our semi-annual used book sales before they are open to the public. Members also work before, during and after the used book sales and we can always use more volunteers. It’s a great way to support the Library and meet other members.

Please, join today!


That is the question we most often hear and here is the answer!   We hold two used book sales a year, in May and October.  2016 Book sale dates coming soon!

Friends Night is a “by invitation only” event for Friends members and we do not sell memberships at the door. This was established so that our members, who live in this community and support the Library and the efforts of the Friends, would have benefit of first choice before the sale is open to the public. If you would like to attend, send your membership application in advance of the sale and you’ll receive your invitation by mail.


The Friends have enrolled in the Kroger Community Rewards Program. If you shop at Kroger and enroll your Kroger Plus card, a portion of your purchases will be distributed to the Friends each quarter. We receive about $400 each year from this program. It’s a great way to support your Library every time you shop at Kroger.

NOTE:  Kroger requires participants in the program to re-enroll in April each year in order for your purchases to count. If you haven’t done so, it’s never too late!

Anyone can participate in this program by registering online. You do not have to be a Friends’ member to enroll. Start by going to krogercommunity  

If you already have an account, you can sign in, go to Community Rewards, and select the Friends by using our account number, 91125. When you enter the number, you will see our name appear – Friends of the Commerce Township Community Library – so you can verify that you are enrolled correctly. 

If you have a Kroger Plus Card but do not have an account, you will first have to create an account. Be sure to have your Kroger Plus card handy. Once your account is created, you can add the Friends under Community Rewards.

If you do not have a Kroger Plus card, they are available at the customer service desk at any Kroger. 

Once your card is registered under the program, just swipe the card or use the phone number related to your registered Kroger Plus card when shopping for each purchase to count. 


The Friends are now participating in the Amazon Smile rewards program. If you’re an Amazon shopper this is another great way to support your Library. Amazon Smile will contribute .05% of your eligible purchases to the Friends each quarter. To register your account and get all the details go to Use the Friends number, 20-8916793, to be connected to the Friends’ account.
