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 52% off books, and many offer free processing, free MARC records, free shipping and more. Imagine the savings!


To get started, explore our contracted suppliers below. Review our CLC Book Contract Member Guide (available here) for details about all of our contracted book vendors, available products, and discount amounts. You will need a CLC username and password. Call 860.344.8777 or email for assistance.

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.

CLC has contracted with eight outstanding suppliers for our members' book purchasing needs:



  • A revised CLC Book Contract Member Guide with a comparison chart of contracted print book vendors is available on this page - CLC username and password required. The guide contains contact information, discount percentages, ordering tips, and everything else members need to use our discounts.
  • Before placing your first order with a supplier, please contact the supplier’s designated representative (or your current representative, if you are already a customer) to ensure that your account is set up to receive CLC’s negotiated discounts.
  • Please note that CLC's member guide does not list all of the services, discounts, processing options, etc. available from each supplier. Please work with your representative to learn more about all of the services and options available to you.
  • NOTE: Discounts are for current CLC member libraries and schools only. All suppliers are furnished with current member lists.
