On February 23, 2005, the Commerce Township Board of Trustees adopted a resolution establishing the Township Library for the use and benefit of the residents of the Township and the general public.
Established as Charter Township Library, CTCL has a seven-member advisory board appointed by the Township Supervisor and confirmed by the Township Board of Trustees.
In January 2017, Commerce Township Community Library moved to its current location: a new, 35,000 square foot building. CTCL sits on the northwest corner of Commerce Township’s Dodge Park 5, a recreational gem that includes: soccer fields, pavilions, wooded paths, and Scarlet’s Playground, a barrier-free, all-inclusive play area.
Commerce Township Community Library's Mission
The mission of the Commerce Township Community Library is to provide equal access to information, ideas and knowledge and to promote reading and discovery within an innovative and inviting environment.
