What’s happening at Carnegie Library?


By Sarah Nichols - Carnegie Public Library Director



‘Tis the season for giving! Now through Dec. 30, Carnegie Public Library is collecting canned food and sundry items to donate to the local food pantries and free stores. Please join us in lending a helping hand to those in need, right here in Fayette County.

Adults: On Saturday, Dec. 2, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., join Peggy Lester of the Fayette County Genealogical Society for a family history workshop. No experience required, just meet in the library’s Local History & Genealogy room to discover how you can learn more about those fascinating folks in your family’s history!

In Washington Court House: Young ones and caregivers, join us for storytime! Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m. is Preschool Storytime, children 3 – 5 years old, and Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. is Books & Blocks, children 1 – 3 years old. Each week features a new theme! Siblings are welcome at either session.

Also, each Tuesday at 11:15 a.m., the library will host “Books & Babies!” “Books & Babies” is a 15-minute session specifically created for our youngest patrons to look at board books, do finger plays, bounce on laps and explore. This early literacy time will introduce your baby to the library and the world of books! On Saturday, Dec. 2 at 11 a.m., families and caregivers are invited to bring their young lads and ladies for “Family Storytime: Tea Party!” At this special storytime we will read books, play themed games and sit down for a fancy “tea time!” Hope to see you there!

In Jeffersonville: Tuesdays at 11 a.m., come, listen to stories, play instruments, create crafts and socialize with other little friends at Toddler Time.
