What’s happening at Carnegie Library?


September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when Carnegie Public Library joins the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide to remind everyone about the valuable resources available with a library card.

From borrowing books, eBooks, and audiobooks to attending STEM programs, learning new skills, or attending a book club or story time, a library card helps everyone do more of what they enjoy; all without stretching their budget. Interested in trying a new hobby? The library can help. Borrow board games, disc golf sets, or a sewing machine from our Beyond Books collection! There’s something for everyone at Carnegie Public Library and signing up for a library card is the first step on the path to academic achievement and lifelong learning for students of all ages. Everyone should have one! Your Carnegie Library continues to adapt and expand services to meet the evolving needs of our community. To sign up for a library card or to learn more about the library’s resources and programs, please visit cplwcho.org.

Storytimes: Preschool-aged children are invited to “Bonnie’s Books” in Jeffersonville on Tuesdays at 11 a.m. and to “Hello, Friends!” in WCH on Thursdays at 11 a.m. Storytime is a great place to socialize, develop listening and literacy skills, and enjoy stories, crafts, songs, and playtime!
