CLC Book Contracts



CLC's publicly-bid contracts with top book suppliers save CLC members millions of dollars each year. Our suppliers offer discounts up to 46.8% off books, and many offer free processing, free MARC records, free shipping and more. Imagine the savings!

To take advantage of CLC's discounts, your library must be a CLC member. You'll also need to set up your accounts directly with the suppliers of your choice.

Our Suppliers

For the period July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2019, CLC has contracted with nine outstanding suppliers for our members' book purchasing needs:

*Baker & Taylor no longer serves the academic or K-12 library markets. As of July 2017, Baker & Taylor has moved all school accounts to Follett. School orders will be fulfilled by Follett and the CLC discount with Baker & Taylor will no longer be applied. Both Ingram and Mackin are full-service providers who continue to serve the K-12 market. Please contact CLC for more information and assistance.
