This Week at the Carnegie: July 20-25

It has been a busy week at the Carnegie as patrons come in to use the computers or snag a new Best Seller. We are always getting new books in so make sure to check out the Best Sellers and New and Notable section when you first walk in. We also have a small bookcase next to it, featuring Susan's latest book recommendations and Carnegie staff reviewed titles. Don't forget - most of our books are on the honor system, and no proof of residence or ID is needed to get a card to check out Best Sellers, Young Adult novels, and more!

Did you hear the news? The Carnegie is hiring! You can view the full job description and apply by clicking here.

The Carnegie is open! We are currently open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, 9am-5pm, Wednesday 9am - 4pm, and Saturday, 9am-12pm, with added measures to keep you and the Carnegie Staff safe. Take a look at this section of our website before stopping in and don't forget your mask or face covering.
