Important Library Updates for Parents and Students
The Carmel Clay Public Library has made changes to services and spaces at the Main Library that are important for students and parents to be aware of, especially those who may normally use the library as an after-school pickup point.
To help with physical distancing and building capacity, the library is asking patrons to limit their visits to quick "grab and go" visits (picking up holds, browsing for items to check out, updating or registering for library cards, etc.).
Study rooms and seating areas are closed, including areas often used by students and tutors. It is not recommended for students to plan to be at the library for long periods of time for activities such as studying or group work due to the lack of seating.
The number of computer workstations has been reduced. Staff are able to provide limited "over-the-shoulder" assistance.
Face masks are required for anyone entering the library, and social distancing guidelines will be enforced during library visits.
Before visiting the library, please review the Guidelines for Safe Library Visits at carmelclaylibrary.org/coronavirus.
Main Library Relocating During 2-Year Construction Project
A major construction project to expand and renovate the Main Library begins this September. The Main Library and its parking areas will be closed to the public beginning September 5 and continuing through the estimated two-year construction period. While construction is underway, Main Library service will be relocated to the Merchants' Square shopping center (116th Street and Keystone Parkway) to the space formerly occupied by Marsh supermarket.
