Carmel's Main Library Closing for Move on September 5

Carmel, IN - As the Carmel Clay Public Library begins construction on its Main Library expansion and renovation project, the library will close to the public in order to move services to a temporary location.

Saturday, September 5 will be the final day of service at the Main Library (55 4th Ave SE) before it closes for a two-year construction project.
On Thursday, October 1, the Merchants' Square Main Library will open at 2140 E. 116th Street.

During this closure, library patrons can continue to place holds on items through the online catalog and pick them up using the curbside holds pickup service at the library's Joyce Winner West Branch in the Village of WestClay.

The library's digital collection of titles to download and stream remains open.
Patrons will be able to reach library staff by phone, 317-814-3900, and online, CCPL Ask A Librarian, during the move.

Library patrons may also take advantage of the countywide borrowing agreement that allows cardholders at any Hamilton County public library to check out materials from the other libraries in the county, including the Hamilton East Public Library locations in Noblesville and Fishers and the Westfield Washington Public Library.

Construction on the Main Library project is expected to last for two years. Project details can be found here.
