CIDL Adults

CIDL: For Adults

The Clarkston Independence District Library believes that people should never stop learning, never stop growing and that we should all be empowered to connect with our community. The Adult department offers a large collection of print and electronic materials to help our patrons meet their information needs. We provide historical and genealogical materials in our special collections, and our interlibrary loan services allow patrons to borrow material from other libraries. Along with our collection of print reference sources, you also have access to several online databases.

This Month's Recommendation: The Hobbit

The Hobbit is set in a time "between the Dawn of Færie and the Dominion of Men", and follows the quest of home-loving hobbit Bilbo Baggins to win a share of the treasure guarded by Smaug the dragon.
