In 1947 volunteers formed a group called the Clements Library Associates (CLA) to raise money in support of acquisitions. Today all donors of financial gifts and historical materials are included in the CLA. Thank you so much for supporting the Clements through this site. Please note that the deductible portion of your gift does not include the fair market value of the item. However, due to a donor endowed fund that covers Clements publishing projects, the entire amount will be used to further the mission of the Clements Library!
